AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINE MYTHOLOGY

The Dreamtime Gods and Spirits of Oz

ALTJIRA

Australian Creator God

Creator God of the Dreamtime

In the beginning, ALTJIRA created the Earth and supplied everything that humans might need — then retired without leaving instructions. Luckily the world was slumbering quite happily in DREAMTIME and the primordial spirits managed to dream their way out of trouble.

Footnote: ALTJIRA is depicted as having emu’s feet, for no reason we can fathom.
