We acknowledge that this guide and all work we undertake as FBi Radio happens on the stolen land of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. We pay our respects to their elders past and present. Redfern, where our studio is based, is the heartland of Aboriginal resistance and resilience in Australia. This land has been in the hands of generations of Gadigal custodians for thousands of years before us and will be for thousands of years to come. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
