ABOUT BGLC ANNUAL REPORT
BGLC Annual Report is a document that is required to meet our statutory responsibilities to the Corporation (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Regulations.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We are seeking vibrant artwork that celebrates our connection to Culture and Country.
This artwork could be digital or painted and may be inspired by our Ancestral Statement below.
Barengi Gadjin Land Council (BGLC) acknowledges and pays respect to our ancestral guardians of Lands, Water, Sky, Wind and Fire.
Our lands of learning, life, lore, healing, and language
Our waters of strengths, survival, and culture
Our sky that lights up our creation stories and seasonal movements across country
Our winds that speak to our fires and they speak to our ancestors.
The five elements align with our five tribal clan groups the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagulk peoples.
We are the Wotjobaluk Nations.
