Aboriginal matters

Advice: Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander viewers are advised that this website may contain images of people who have died.



We respectfully acknowledge the past and present traditional owners of Western Australia and pay our respects to the leaders of the traditional custodians of this land. Together we acknowledge the contributions of Aboriginal Australians and non-Aboriginal Australians to  this country we all live in and share together - Western Australia.

Our vision for Reconciliation

The Equal Opportunity Commission envisions Australia as a nation that recognises and respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait  peoples as the original inhabitants and custodians of the land and seas; where its citizens work together to eliminate disadvantage, discrimination and injustice experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in every aspect of their lives; and where opportunity, security, education, and good health - for so long denied Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples - are enjoyed by all, fully and without qualification.


The Commission produces a range of publications designed to address the interests and needs of Aboriginal people. To find out more click here.
