Mikaela Cameron (M. J. Badagarang)
Mikaela Cameron (M. J. Badagarang) is a proud Dharug saltwater woman from the Hawkesbury River in New South Wales, Australia. Mikaela has a deep connection to her culture and has a passion for sharing this with others through the use of art and creative making.
"Worimi, I am a proud Dharug woman. My totem is Badagarang (Eastern Grey Kangaroo), and Waroo (the brown-eyes crow). I pay my respects to all Elders past, present and emerging, and extend this acknowledgment to you and your people. Welcome, let's walk together."

Recent evidence of middens in Victoria has now placed Aboriginal People here on Australian soil for over 120,000 years, making this beautiful culture the oldest living culture in the world.
We must protect, cherish, and respect all that has been done to protect this land by Aboriginal Peoples and continue to be guided by their understandings and deep connections.
