Aboriginal Culture Dance

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

Australian Aboriginal people express themselves, their culture and their history through ceremonies that involve dance. Some of these ceremonies can go for hours, days or even weeks. Dance can celebrate a spiritual connection to the world or it may celebrate creatures or plants from daily life - such as the kangaroo or the yam. These ceremonies involve dances that have been handed down through generations of people and many are particular to specific clan groups.
