Aboriginal astronomy - ABC Science

ABC The Indigenous people of Australia have their own knowledge of the solar system which has been accumulated over many thousands of years. This website gives the history behind indigenous and non-indigenous astronomy, as well as Aboriginal stories surrounding some of the constellations. This site also includes a good explanation of what The Dreaming is for Aboriginal people.
