At SNU, we acknowledge the spirits and ancestors of the lands and waters where we live, work and weave. We acknowledge and give thanks to the Quandamooka, Turrbal and Yuggera Peoples, the traditional owners and custodians of the country also known as the Redlands and Brisbane.
This beloved 8 pointed star is used by star weavers around the world, creating symbols of courage, light and solidarity to end all forms of violence for the One Million Stars to End Violence movement. Learn more at www.onemillionstars.net
