Waang

I heard crows this morning. They are a familiar sound in my world.

Yesterday evening, a friend was talking about felt figures she was making for her children to play with when they go camping, including one of Waang the Crow.

Waang is a Wurundjeri Creation spirit. He is one of those mischievous characters. Plays tricks on people.

I’m thinking there is potential there for kinder activities.  I’ll put Waang on my list of things to learn more about.

PS  The Australian crow is technically a raven, I believe.
The Wurundjeri people are the traditional owners of the land that Melbourne was built on.
