THE DREAMING

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

“Dreaming does not convey the fullness of the concept for Aboriginal people but is the most acceptable English word to Aboriginal people. The word is acceptable because very often revelations or insights are received in dreams or recurring visions. The Dreaming refers to all that is known and all that is understood. It is the way Aboriginal people explain life and how their world came into being. It is central to the existence of traditional Aboriginal people, their lifestyle and their culture, for it determines their values and beliefs and their relationship with every living creature and every feature of the landscape.”

  1. My fav part was honey world and tasting the honey,seeing the man robbing the hive with the smoker I also liked the Madura tea factorey

  2. The Year 3 students are putting the finishing touches to their flow charts this week on a food product of their choice. It is obvious that some of them have learnt a great deal about food processing and how some food gets from the ‘Farm to Table’. Well done 3GD!
