Walangari Aboriginal Kangaroo Swap Badge


KANGAROO - Kangaroos are sacred animals. When we eat a Kangaroo we say sorry and thank the Kangaroo for giving its life to feed us. We release its spirit so it can come back as something else or another kangaroo.

Designed by Walangari Karntawarra

Woven and Overlocked badge

6cm x 10cm

Scouts Australia have commissioned First Nation’s Artist – Walangari Karntawarra to design some original artwork for a series of blanket badges. 

Walangari's designs tell the story of our nation’s first people. There are 4 badges in the series and 50c from the sale of each badge manufactured is paid to the artist Walangari for his work. On top of this, the usual 10% of all badge sales also is shared between your Branch and Scouts Australia.

We are pleased to collaborate with Walangari and thank him for sharing his stories with Scouting and for allowing us to produce these works in the form of a woven badge for all our Scouting Members.

Each badge includes the printed story behind the artwork on the back of the badge.
