The Rainbow Serpent Myths
The Rainbow Serpent myths are some of the most important stories in Aboriginal culture. These stories are part of 'Dreamtime' or 'The dreaming', they are the creation myths of the aboriginal people. Dreamtime (Tjukurrpa) stories tell of great spirits in animal and human form who sculpted the featureless earth. Stories have been passed down the generations for thousands of years and are the basis of Aboriginal spirituality - they are often humorous, and sometimes rather dark!
