A Note on Terminology

Koorie is a general term for Australian Indigenous people from Victoria and the southern part of New South Wales, meaning ‘our people’, ‘man’ or ‘person’. Not all Australian Indigenous people from this region use Koorie. There are many reasons for this, including personal and community preference to use their own clan or nation title instead of a generic term, or Koorie being very similar to words that are of an offensive nature in some languages. When referring to Australia as a whole, the terms Indigenous Australians or Indigenous people will be used.
