An Aboriginal man has died while in custody in Victoria.
Corrections Victoria confirmed the man died at Ravenhall Correctional Centre on March 7.
His death has been reported to the coroner, who will formally determine the cause of death.
The family of the man has been notified and a smoking ceremony has been arranged.
"We recognise that all deaths in custody have impacts on family members, friends, corrections staff and the Aboriginal community, and we're working to ensure they are provided with the support they need," Corrections Victoria said in a statement.
It comes two days after it was revealed two Indigenous people died in custody in NSW in the past week.
