AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Dreaming Stories as seen on ABC are a terrific series of animated films based on Australian Aboriginal storytelling (oral histories) that have been maintained as a body of knowledge for over 40,000 years.

Children love them and adults are amazed at what they learn about Australia from each story.

The stories tell us things about the land, animals and birds, the trees, waterholes, rivers, sea life, the stars, society and behaviour, lore, morals and respect and cultural diversity. Many Dreaming stories tell us about the creation of the world and the spiritual life in all things that exist in the world.

But most of all they are stories that entertain and take you on a journey through time as you share in their secrets and revelations about Indigenous Australia.'
