Black Opal :: Dreamtime

I was born in Australia and have lived here all my life, and yet, like many non-aboriginal Australians (and unfortunately quite a few aboriginal Australians as well) I know very little about the culture, religion, myths and legends of this land before white colonisation. I definitely feel an affinity for this land though, and I would like to learn what I can about the Australian aborigines' and their cultural heritage. This section is devoted to that ongoing project
