"Dreamings give us our history, our origin, where we started from. They are not made up stories, they are factual events from long ago. Our people have made them into stories so that they are easier for children to understand."

Beliefs:

A common characteristic of Aboriginal groups is their similar belief systems which are called the Dreaming. The Dreaming may be thought of as a religious system but this does not always convey its true merits. However in a way it is accurate, as Aboriginal people received a sense of enlightenment through visions and dreams. They do not like words such as "mythology", "legends" or "fables" being used to describe the Dreaming.
