Point is there is tonnes of stories from the dreaming that can easily be extrapolated as early settler stories that we know from cave paintings to be thousands of years old. The rainbow serpent which is a commonly known story even outside indigenous culture is yes about how the dreaming explains how the country and land came to be. But it’s also about how the dance and tradition of celebrating that land came to be.
I guess what I’m saying, is the rainbow serpent Dreamtime story is a much larger part of this countries history and culture than the landing of Arthur Phillip.
So many people (yourself included) call for a pointed date in aboriginal history to come out and claim as a sufficient national day, full well knowing no indigenous person is going to he able to come up with something based on a method of counting trips around the sun that the northern hemisphere used that had no relevance to their culture for 59,750 years.
This history is there, we just have to change the way we measure it.
Indigenous people didn’t even know what a “date” was.
Well not until January 26, 1788 that is, which is largely the point.
