“The Kangaroo is another creation animal...and from the beginning of time kangaroos have had their own obligation and responsibility to themselves and everything around them.  A group of Kangaroos is called a mob and they most commonly move in groups. When they are on their own they keep watch over things calmly, but stay alert. The kangaroo features prominently in the culture of Indigenous groups across Australia and in dance we mimic the kangaroo by placing our fingers above our head to represent the ears, back arched and looking out, always remembering our responsibility to mob.”
