Abstract:

Many anthropologists believe that Australia's indigenous traditions make up the oldest surviving culture in the world. At the heart of this culture is a robust oral tradition and a belief system based upon reverence for the land, and for the spiritual dimension known as the Dreamtime. Composed of several different groups, each with a distinct set of customs and traditions, the Australian Aborigines are nevertheless linked by many linguistic and cultural similarities. This classic program ushers viewers into their ancient culture as tribal elders transfer knowledge of the old ways to what may be the last traditional Aboriginal generation.
