    each other about the Dreamtime, these stories
    taught about life, including birth, love, food
    gathering, hunting, warfare, marriage and death
    but also about the Creation.?he Aboriginal
    traditional way to educate about the Aboriginal
    History, Culture and Laws was storytelling, using
    a combination of Arts form such as painting,
    singing, music and dancing to illustrate the
    ancient "Dreamtime Stories". Traditionally,
    people telling a story would use the haunting
    sound of the didgeridoo with song and dances, but
    also symbolic drawing were created. These designs
    were traditionally used as body paint decorations
    for corroborees and as sand paintings for
    ceremonial purposes. ?ecause the "Stories of the
    Dreaming" have been handed down through the
    generations, they are not owned by individuals.
    They belong to a group, the storytellers is
    choose by the Elders, and have the obligation to
    pass the stories along, ensuring that young
    people build and retain a sense of who they are.
