Country. Culture. Community.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri peoples who gifted us our name korin gamadji (woi-wurrung) meaning grow and emerge. We also acknowledge all Traditional Owners of the lands where we live, work and play.

Empowering the next generation together

Korin Gamadji Institute

We extend our deepest respect to First Peoples and Traditional Owners of the land, air and waterways where we live and work.

Korin Gamadji means ‘grow and emerge’ in Woiwurrung, the language of the Wurundjeri people. In 2011 these words were gifted to Richmond Football Club by Wurundjeri Elders, and the Korin Gamadji Institute was born.
