AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Aboriginal people say that the land was created in the Tjukurpa. Some non-Aboriginal people call it the Dreamtime, but this is not a good name because it has nothing to do with dreams...The land was created by the Ancestors, who were supernatural beings... as the Ancestors crossed the land they had adventures along the way... Wherever some important event took place, energy was left in the ground... Uluru is a very important place in the Tjukurpa. Several ancestors passed this way. In fact some of them are still here.'
