Front Inscription

This plaque commemorates the signing of a joint 
     Memorandum of Understanding 
                 between the 
Bega, Eden and  Merrima
ns Local Aboriginal Land Councils 
                   and the 
            Native Title Holder

                  and the
  Bega Valley Shire Council 
            on 13 June 2001

The Memorandum of Understanding will achieve positive and beneficial reconciliation outcomes and acknowledges that for thousands of years before European settlement that the lands and water of the Shire were owned and occupied by the Djirringanj, Thua, Bidawahal and Ngarigo people under the Monaro / Yuin Nations and that they were the original inhabitants and custodians of the land and water.

The descendants of these people retain a close connection 
and affinity with their ancestral lands and waters.
