It wasn’t a big change for us. When we pack your coffee, we do a little research and type it in. It may not be a big change for you either, another line in the address format is easy to miss. But small tweaks like this do have the potential to make fundamental change when done at scale.
Imagine if every package we ever received recognised the Indigenous country. We’d be connecting with First Nation cultures, languages and places everyday. We begin to understand the fact that our homes in Chippendale stand on Gadigal country, that an office in St Kilda is also Euro-Yroke country and that our grandma in Wollongong lives on Dharawal country. Through this simple act, Indigenous culture starts to become part of the Australian vernacular, part of our day to day.
