Aboriginal Dreaming

Bilargun told Doroo that if she was ever in danger she had to hit her tail on the water as a warning signal.After some time daroo had babies and do you know that they had Daroo's bill and webbed feet and Bilargun's fur coat and flat tail. To this day the baby's ancestors can still be seen in the creeks and rivers using the same water signal.They are called the platypus.PLATYPUS

The word Dreaming means to see and understand the law .These Dreaming stories passed on an important knowledge which would be carried the generations and taught to children.They passed this through songs,dances,paintings and story telling.

In most Aboriginal stories, the ancestors come down to earth and form the rocks,plants and environment that we now know today. The ancestors also created relationships between people when they came down to earth. Once the ancestors created the earth they morphed into inanimate,and these are the sacred places where the Aboriginal ancestors remain to this day.

Once there was a water rat named Bilargun,while he was out hunting he saw Daroo the duck,and decided that he wanted her as his wife.He silently swam underneath the water and grabbed her legs and then took her back to his home.There he made her very comfortable and brought her food every day.They were very happy.

Aboriginals had many dreamtime stories and all these stories show how animals recieved tails and other body features.
