Today we began our unit on early Australian history by looking at some Dreamtime stories.

We learnt The Dreaming often translate as – ‘see and understand the law‘.

The Dreamtime explains the Aboriginal understanding of the world. It shares stories of the world’s creation, and it’s earliest stories. They explain the beginning of knowledge which became the laws of the land. In various ways they stress the importance of relationships between the land, animals and people.

Dreaming stories pass on important knowledge, cultural values and belief systems from generation to generation. This is done through song, dance, painting and storytelling.

We also learnt about the importance of a particular creator ancestor for indigenous Victorians, Bunjil the Eagle.
