Aboriginal Perspective

Uluru Aboriginal perspective

Two tribes of ancestral spirits were invited to a feast in the area, but became distracted by beautiful Sleepy Lizard Women and dallied at a waterhole. Because the waiting hosts were angry at being stood up, they sang evil into a mud sculpture that came to life as a dingo. There was a terrible slaughter followed by a great battle, which ended in the deaths of the leaders of both tribes. The earth itself rose up in grief at the bloodshed and that's how Uluru was made.
