DSMG acknowledges that we, the Dharug People, are the Traditional Custodians of Dharug Nura. We work and walk together along the journey of truth telling, healing and learning to belong together with Dharug Nura. We continue the journey of remembering and respecting the resilience, strength and spirit of the Ancestors and our Elders past, present and emerging.

We look after the Blacktown Native Institute site for the Dharug Community. This land is the first of Dharug Nura to return to Dharug ownership. This land is for Dharug people, a place to connect to Country, culture and community.
We celebrate, recognise and promote Dharug culture through language, art, performance and story telling. We create spaces for Dharug community to continue practicing and learning culture.
Our work fosters strong social and economic foundations for Dharug futures. We develop economic, training and capacity building opportunities for Dharug people in Western Sydney.
Strong governance, integrity
and a clear strategic vision are the foundation for growing DSMG into a sustainable Non-Profit and to continue supporting the Dharug community into the future.
Dharug Strategic Management Group is a Dharug-led Non-Profit Organisation. Our purpose is to advance the culture and wellbeing of the Dharug people and promote reconciliation, respect and harmony between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. We exercise care and stewardship over elements of Dharug Nura (Country) that return to Dharug care.
