Through ceremonies, song and dance, art, rituals, hunting and cooking (Rose 1992, p. 45), the elders of the Indigenous Australian community pass on the stories to keep The Dreaming alive so that the young generation know where they come from. The level of family goes far beyond that of what I know where my own experience and stories only go back as far as a great grandparent telling personal accounts. Seeking further knowledge would require my own initiative and record searching through history to find my origins. The beauty of The Dreaming is the knowledge forever being passed from generation to generation going as far back as creation. The richness of the stories told and the meaning, sometimes hidden, fills me with a deep sense of respect towards the Aboriginal people.
By mid afternoon Huggy Face and his sailors figured out that the calmness of the beaches, sun kissed sand, and blissful wind compound was perfect for fishing, swimming and surfing. In order to know for sure that it was what he was looking for Captain Huggy Face decided to stay around and explore the outskirts of the island. Two days passed and they discovered that the island had a gold treasure! Now with this finding he came back every day to see if it’d be replenished again and so one day it was filled up again. After several weeks Huggy Face saw the adversity of creatures that lived there, which was a total bonus on his behalf; he knew it’d become more than a want but a wish to be there for every traveler in the world.

BIOQ121 - Foundations of Critical Enquiry Assignment B – Traditional Evidence Native Quinine Tree and its medicinal qualities and uses amongst North Western NSW Aborigines Name: Rebecca Smith SN: 238850 Australian Aborigines have been using native plants for both food and medicine for thousands of years. Their special relationship with the land includes an understanding of all animals and plants. This relationship is not only important for food and medicine but also their spiritual beliefs. According to Isaacs (2002, p.197) ‘Aboriginal herbal medicine has been gleaned by the best scientific technique of all – extensive trial and presumably error, and observations of the results, not on animals in test laboratories but on human patients
Chris believed that by going off on his own in the Alaskan wilderness he would change himself; finally know what his purpose was in life. From what Chris wrote in his journal, he implied that happiness comes from finding yourself, not by how many people you have a personal relationship with. Chris, who had renamed himself as “Alexander Super-tramp”, wrote in his journal “I didn’t really mind the absence of intimacy in my life, the lack of real human connection” (137). Writing this thought down in his journal, he had proven that human connection to him was nice, but not necessary. People need connections with others, but these connections are not always what brings them to their absolute highest level of happiness.

Some well written literature include “I Will Fight No More Forever”, “Song of the Sky Loom”, “The Origin of the Long House”, and “Jesus Christ’s Half-Brother is Alive and Well on the Spokane Indian Reservation”. While both American and Native Americans have their own way to write literature, Native American literature talk about nature, peacefulness, sadness, and dedication in a way no other literature does. Native Americans show great emotion towards nature. They view the Earth and the sky as their mother and father. The use of natural images in Native American literature reveals their love and respect for the land.
The smell of the water and the warmth that touched my skin, when the sun peeked through the clouds, took me back in time to the campground. I could see it so clearly in my mind, I felt like I was there. I sat still, just enjoying the moment. Visiting Halifax was a whole new experience. One second I felt like I went back in time to the 50’s, and the next second I felt like I was back 10 years, camping with my family.
