Closely interlinked to the land, traditional Aboriginal life had adapted their lifestyle, art, beliefs and culture to respect this part of our earth, not overwhelm it.
Aboriginals have inhabited this corner of the planet for tens of thousands of years. They are the traditional owners of the land now called Australia and are made up of many diverse tribes and clans.
Dreamtime stories of the beginning of the earth, the animals and the plants are told through song, dance, performances and storytelling, in order to teach the young about proper behavior and to teach respect for the land and all that is in it.
