Aborigines of the Northern Territory: scouting outpost

Australia, 1972

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Scouting has become an important activity among young Aboriginal children of Maningrida on the Arafura Sea in Northern Australia. In 1964 a school teacher introduced scouting, and its popularity led to the growth of the movement to include Cubs, Rovers and Guides. Young people from eleven tribes in the area are involved.
