The Aborigines Of Australia

By: Emily Surcey

Basic Beliefs Dreamtime is at the center of the Aborigines belief system and describes the mystical time when the Aboriginal people made their world. It also explains the origins of the people and of the land. Dreamtime includes a story of how things have happened, how the universe came to be, how humans were created, and how the Creator intended for humans to function in this world.

Origin and Location The first Aborigines lived in Australia and have mainly lived there ever since. They survive on the natural resources grown in Australia.
