Linux Australia currently has an excellent value statement and a
proven track record of being open and welcoming to newcomers and
embracing diversity.


>From reading the ["Acknowledgement of
wikipedia article, it is unclear how requiring it for any/all LA
events will improve the LA community or make it more welcoming.

This discussion is probably better suited to the [Policies mailing
list](http://lists.linux.org.au/mailman/listinfo/policies] and I'd
encourage you to continue it there.

Kind regards,
Luke John

I think we should have a policy that all LA events held in Australia should start with an Acknowledgement of Country or Welcome to Country. Also events in other countries such as NZ should show respect to indigenous people in an appropriate manner.
