Celebrating National Reconciliation Week
May 29, 2017
Pipeline Drillers acknowledge the Quandamooka people as the traditional custodians of the land on which our business operates.
Quandamooka territory comprises of the waters and islands of Central and Southern Moreton Bay, and the coastal land and streams between the Brisbane and Logan Rivers.
This week we celebrate National Reconciliation Week (NRW), a milestone which highlights the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islands in the journey towards reconciliation including two important milestones, 50 years since the 1967 referendum (May 27), and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision (June 3).
HSEQ Manager Torben Lehmann said, Pipeline Drillers respect and acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the primary guardians, keepers and knowledge holders of Aboriginal cultural heritage and are committed to protecting the integrity of areas and objects with archaeological or historical value.
“Our project teams consult and actively engage with Registered Aboriginal Parties, Traditional Owners and Aboriginal people in each state and area we work, to locate, record and manage cultural heritage, and the company’s policies and project plans reinforce this commitment”, he said.
This is the time for Pipeline Drillers and its partners to think about how we can come together to celebrate our ancient culture by taking the next steps to driving change and reconciliation.
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs annually from 27 May – 3 June. For more information visit http://www.reconciliation.org.au/nrw/
