The Aboriginals believe that there is a story for every living thing, every system, which they would learn and, in turn, tell a story about themselves, weaving their own tales into the ever after of the great big story of life and the universe. People have always told stories. We tell stories to explain the world around us, to teach life's lessons, to explain ourselves to ourselves.

Who are we but our stories? We have much more to tell...
