  • The aboriginal religion is based on nature, humans and nature were on the same level. • The beginning of time in Aboriginal beliefs is called “The Dreamtime” or “Dreaming” • In Dreamtime, “Ancestors” came from below the earth to form various parts of nature, some became men, others animals, still others became rivers, plants, or the sky. • This is why one of the central beliefs is a deep respect for nature and all its parts.
