Uncle Badger Bates is a Barkandji Elder whose practice as an artist, cultural heritage consultant and environmental activist incorporates the landforms, animals, plants, songs and stories of Barkandji Country and the Baaka (the Darling River). This artwork, featuring Uncle Badger’s linocut prints and accompanied by his stories of the Baaka, has been commissioned by the UTS Faculty of Science to assist science students in their appreciation and understanding of Indigenous people’s connection to land, animals and water.
