“Warami, I am a proud Dharug Woman. My totem is Badagarang (Eastern Grey Kangaroo). I pay respects to Country: the land, sea, elders, people, animals, L.O.R.E and Dreaming. I extend this acknowledgement to you and your family/community.
I deeply enjoy connecting with people and sharing my culture with others. It’s my absolute dream to run cultural workshops and create visual artworks to express individual stories.
Welcome, let's walk together.”
-Mikaela J. Badagarang
