What do they believe in? •All Aborigines have a similar religion which is based on Dreaming. They believe that at the beginning of time the world was a shapeless mass of nothing, waiting to be transformed into what we see today. • Aborigines believe that they are constantly living in the Dreaming. When they dream of stories they tell them to others and draw pictures of their dreams to explain things in the world. • They believe that in the beginning of the world there were mythical beings called the ancestors who arrived and took many shapes, although most commonly they were great serpents. • The ancestors began to travel across the world shaping the landscape and creating new life as they went. Every major feature in Australia has an aboriginal story to explain it.
