Bush Prof is based on the traditional lands of the palawa peoples of Tasmania, Australia; and on the traditional lands of the Susquehannock and Lenape peoples of what is now central Pennsylvania. I acknowledge the First Peoples and Elders, past and present, of the regions where I live and work, and their deep cultural presence and connection to country.
