The Dreaming

Aboriginal languages

Before European settlement there where 250 languages.

But now there are only 130 now because 20 are endangered.

Spirituality

I learnt that aboriginal people dream time stores are not true.

Two birds were in a serpent’s stomach and the aboriginals opened the serpents’ stomach and the birds came out and went to sleep. When it woke up it got angry and it throw rocks at them.
