Aborigines would swim in the water with crocodiles, they believe the crocodiles would only take people who had done something wrong. They still swim with crocodiles and they also believe the only time you get sick  is if you did something wrong, the head heals lives.
When someone died they were dried out, wrapped in leaves and bark, then they were taken home and put in trees.
Living and dead are a link between the present culture and its mythic logical origin.
Older paintings were said to have been done by spirits from the dream time. Mime spirits are ET’s
Aborigines are still proud, they won’t rummage through garbage or paint graffiti on a restroom.
Sacred Site, a place where aborigines find a manifestation of divine power, a sense of contact with a creative form.

With great difficulty, they are starting to move into the white society.
