KIM Rush is one of 7000 Githabul Aboriginal people in Australia and is proud of it.

Yesterday, she organised a cultural information session at the Warwick Town Hall on behalf of The Queensland South Githabul Council, which attracted a crowd of 50.

Gloria Williams from Woodenbong was a guest speaker.

Ms Rush said the Githabul people had been in the Warwick area for thousands of years.

"The aim of the information session was to teach the whole community about the Githabul people and resolve any conflict," Ms Rush said.

She said the connection to the country was not just because people had lived here.

"It also has to do with bloodlines and songlines and spirituality."

Southern Downs Regional Council Mayor Peter Blundell was at the session and said it was important to work together.

"I understand where they are coming from and look forward to developing co-operative arrangements for the future," Cr Blundell said.
