Proud Wiradjuri woman and long-time Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT Member Natalie Smith, has personified the 2022 NAIDOC week theme Get Up! Stand Up! and Show Up!
setting an example for our entire Guiding community to follow.

Describing the artwork, Natalie said that “Balaagan Ginhii Malungan translates to older women leading young women. It is the story of strong women coming together from all nations to empower our younger generations of women to be strong leaders in our community.
