Indigenous Australians are one among the native people on earth with traditions and customs going back to approximately 50,000 years. Their belief system is built on their value & respect towards the land and the dreamtime. Though their dreaming about land changes between different groups, the idea of creation from their ancestors stays similar; ancestors and forefathers sprang up from underneath the soil as spirits and started building mountains, rivers, waterholes, trees, and light gardens for future generations.
These ancestral spirits are considered as the creators and they are part of their day to day life. Aboriginals believe death is a transition to another life, where they consider the spirit taking different form of life after death. Spirits/soul of these ancestral beings are transferred to a different shape such as a tree, river, mountain, garden etc.
Anette Doolan comes from Santa Terese of Central Australia. She belongs to the Doolan family and speaks Arrernte language. Her dreamings mainly involve Seven Sisters, Dancing Spirits, Spirit Dreaming etc. —M & S Textiles Australia
Aboriginal Art is one of the more ancient traditional arts in the world, going back approximately 50,000 years. In early days, Aboriginals did cave painting, rock painting, and sand or ground painting. The newer generations use acrylic paints on canvas to portray their Dreamtime. These Aboriginal artworks are sought after not only in Australia but worldwide. According to Aboriginal mythology, Dreamtime is the era when the world was dark. There was nothing on earth; the soil was soft. This was when the forefathers sprang up from underneath the soil and started building most of the requirements for their needs and that of future generations. They built mountains, rivers, waterholes, trees, and light gardens.
