Bush Bananas and Fire Dreaming, Bush Onions Wild Flowers & Bush Food Dreaming, Sacred Woman's Song and Corroboree
The Corroboree is a ceremonial gathering of Aboriginal people. There are some strict unwritten regulations that attendees have to follow. At corroboree, Aboriginals interact with Dream time ancestors through dance, music, costumes and body decorations. Outside guests are not permitted to attend these ceremonies without the elder’s permission. One type of corroboree does cover all social needs. There are corroborees for various purposes such as education for children’s learning, death of a person, initiation, and others. Dance is an integral part of Aboriginal culture. It includes stories of the ancestral beings who are the creators of the universe. Dancing is learned at an early age. Corroborees have religious connotations to relate individuals with ancestral beings. Although the attendees and organizers are responsible people, they must get final clearance from the elders. Nobody is ever allowed to make any unpleasant comment on the participants or performers.
