History: Noongar Indigenous people

I wrote an earlier blog describing an indigenous man who became upset in Perth at a Asian man playing the digeridoo and caused a disturbance. I watched him as he walked away and made the sign of an eagle. I now have a deeper understanding of why he did that. Read below and find another… Continue reading

Balancing the Dreaming and the Dreamtime

It is interesting when I explore the Indigenous dreaming you can feel the awareness of a people that goes beyond the material world.

Custodians: Arrernte People of Alice Springs (Mparntwe)

I find myself curious about them and a desire to understand more of their way. I feel I don’t know them at all… Continue reading

The aboriginal people were great healers. Here is… Continue reading

Dreaming Time

I felt to post up the aboriginal dream time. Funnily enough I am at the Loving Hut and just as I looked up an indigenous man walks past. Beautiful timing.

The aboriginal people mastered living with nature for more than 40,000 years, we have only been here 200 years. How fast we are destroying the… Continue reading
