The Mary G Foundation Feather
The feather has long held a special place in world cultures as a symbol of awareness, light, hope and flight, whilst orange is
the colour of creativity, curiosity, vitality and endurance.
In Mary G’s feather boa an orange feather also represents fun!
As the symbol of the Mary G Foundation, the orange feather carries our hopes to assist Aboriginal Australians to soar.
The feather has a strong back bone that allows it the freedom to sway serenely with the wind whilst using its plumage to guide, speed
This is a metaphor for the Mary G Foundation. We aim to contribute the positive change for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
people of Australia by being the backbone that supports a greater sense of empowerment and by facilitating culturally appropriate
ways of doing business, assisting Indigenous people to prosper and develop a true sense of self worth, by targeting improved health
outcomes and growing the arts industry, particularly the performing arts.
The feather is like Australia's Aboriginal people, very fragile yet very strong. The rejuvenation of Indigenous identity is vitally
important to our place within the Australian landscape and will assist Australia to work towards a Reconciled future by celebrating
the uniqueness of the ancient peoples of our country as the oldest living continuing culture.
