Parrtjima respectfully acknowledges the past and present traditional owners, custodians and ancestors of Mparntwe (Alice Springs) and surrounding estates Antulye (Undoolya) and Irlpme (Bond Springs).
We recognise there is a network of custodians with traditional rights to speak for these regions, and many more Arrernte people who keep culture, country, kinship and language alive and strong.
We are deeply grateful to those who have chosen to guide and advise this festival in so many ways. We promise to listen to and learn from you, and seek to honour your guidance, advice and blessings for Parrtjima.
