Ngaala kaaditj Noongar moort keyen kaadak nidjar boodjar.

We acknowledge Noongar people as the original custodians of this land.

We pray that our imprint on this earth may bear the marks of reverence for this fragile planet and for each other as we journey together on the path towards reconciliation.

The Lord’s Prayer in Noongar

Ngaala Maaman ngiyan yira moonbooli
moodlooga. Kooranyi nooak korl.
Noonak waangk yoowarl koorl, birdiyar
ngaala boodja noonook waarn noonak
kooranyi kaalak. Nyinyak ngaalang nidja kedela
ngaala mereny. Nyinya nyinyak ngaalang
ngaala wara waarniny.
Ngaalak nyinya nyinyak baalang ngiyan
waarn wara ngaalang.
Yoowart koorl ngaalang moort-moort djooroot.
Maaman maar barang ngaalang,
djenak yoowart barang ngaalang.
Noonak waangk birdiyar.
Noonak moorditj, noonook ngaangk yira.
Kalyokool, kalyokool. Kaya.

Our Father who is above and beyond
everything. Holy and sacred is your name.
Your word will come here and be boss
on our ground as you do in your
holy and sacred home. Give us this day
our bread. Forgive us
our bad doings.
We forgive them who do bad to us.
Don’t take us to the struggling path.
Father hold us so
the devil doesn’t get us.
Your word is boss.
You are strong. You are the rising sun.
For ever and forever. Amen.
