Change endorsed

March 25, 2018

Benalla Rural City Council has voted to endorse changing of the name of the ‘‘Indigenous Garden’’ at Moira Reserve to the ‘‘Aboriginal Garden’’.

The request to change the name was made by local Aboriginal Elders to the Benalla Riverine Parklands Advisory Committee in 2016.

The Elders explained the importance of reclaiming the word ‘‘Aboriginal’’ and stressed the importance of the word to their people.

The NAIDOC committee supported the name change and signage will soon be installed reflecting the new name.
