Boomarang is more than a sport in Australia. It was a multipurpose tool for the indigenous people. They used it for hunting, ceremonies, digging, and competitions. The hunting boomarang is a key tool for hunting among the indigenous warriors. Archaeologists have even found remains of people that lost their lives to boomerangs! This boomarang was created by Murra Wolka Creations, a family-run company that sells high-quality, handcrafted indigenous artwork. Murra Wolka is also a strong advocate against counterfeit, non-indigenous boomarangs.
