AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINE MYTHOLOGY

The Dreamtime Gods and Spirits of Oz

DREAMTIME

Australian legendary event

Also known as ALCHERA

The Primordial Timeless Dream

This is not a God, but the hazy timeless dream that existed before the world began and which influences so much of aboriginal Australian mythology.

Overseen by the God ALTJIRA, this was when the ancient spirits of all tribes walked the Earth in a state of profound dreaminess.

Now they all sleep underground, but shamans and other interested parties can still communicate with the DREAMTIME past if they inhale the right substances.
