In Woi wurrung, the language of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, Maggolee means ‘here in this place’.
Maggolee celebrates good practice in Victorian local government Aboriginal engagement and reconciliation and aims to bring together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, local communities and the councils that serve them.
Developed by Reconciliation Victoria, with funding from the Victorian Government, the Maggolee website provides information on how Councils engage with the Aboriginal community, as well as information on local Traditional Owners and Aboriginal organisations, key contacts, demographic data, and services.
The website also includes case studies on how Councils can better partner with Aboriginal communities on service delivery, the arts, reconciliation, land use, planning and cultural heritage, and support Aboriginal employment and economic participation.
Maggolee is a joint project between Reconciliation Victoria, the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV), the Office of Aboriginal Affairs Victoria and Local Government Victoria (LGV). It is part of the Andrews Labor Government’s efforts to work alongside Aboriginal Victorians in building respect and recognition.
