Storytelling is a very important part of our culture
A long time ago our people told a lot of old stories. These were the stories of how things were made, how the animals grew or changed, how people lived and moved around.
They told stories of why the birds sang, or why they changed their colours, and why the stars shine at night, how people got their food or where the waterholes could be found.
They told these stories to pass on the knowledge and understandings that our people needed to know in order to survive in this country, long ago.
Today we need these same stories to help us understand and enjoy the differences in lifestyles
and traditions of our people.
It will help us to know the stories, the traditions and songs of our culture, for it will provide us with windows to the world.
It is good for us to know this and it will be good for us to pass this knowledge on to our kids. This will help us to learn and respect others.
