Five temporary signs that aim to remind Haig Park visitors about the Ngunnawal people's connection to country were unveiled with a smoking ceremony on Tuesday.
The installation was created through collaboration between The University of Canberra, the City Renewal Authority and the United Ngunnawal Elders Council (UNEC).
The signs at are one of 26 outcomes from the City Renewal Authority's Haig Park Experiments project.
A sign at the Lonsdale Street entrance of Haig Park depicts a the UNEC charter.
Four other signs across the park designed by Ngunnawal elder Wally Bell, explain the significance of natural landmarks to Canberra's First Nations people.
They explain the significance of Haig Park itself, Mount Ainslie Sullivans Creek and Black Mountain.
Dr Cathy Hope from the University of Canberra sought the guidance of Aunty Ros Brown, who is the elder in residence at the university.
"The Haig Park experiment was a placemaking project, we conducted 26 temp activations in the park and the first experiment and one of the most important experiments was the First Nations project," Dr Hope said.
"We went to [UNEC] we asked them what they wanted to see in the park and this is one of the outcomes of that."
Nugunnawal Elder, and co-chair of UNEC Aunty Ros Brown said that the project and collaboration was a significant act of reconciliation
"The sign is beautiful, it is shared by the United Ngunnawal Elders Council for everybody."
Aunty Ros Brown commended the leadership of the University of Canberra and the City Renewal Authority for reaching out to UNEC.
"Usually during reconciliation week or NAIDOC people rely on us [First Nations Australians] to do it."
"I don't think it's out of meanness I think it's just that they think it's our responsibility to do it."
"But we have a government department and a university reach out to us- that's leadership."
City Renewal Authority chief executive officer Malcolm Snow said that reconciliation is an important element of the department's work.
"As a city renewal agency some people might see that connection as being a very distant one," he said.
"But we think our work, particularly in the way which we are seeking to encourage more people and different people to use our public spaces, reconciliation is a really fundamental theme to the way we go about it.
"We want to think about future generations of Canberrans and we want think that in the way which we go about that in a partnership like this that we actually create places that more people feel welcome and included."
