“Star Stories of the Dreaming” Synopsis

When the ancient wisdoms of the universe held by the oldest culture on earth meet modern astrophysics a new concept is born - cultural astronomy.

Increasingly Aboriginal people in Australia are being recognised as the first astronomers.

In the meeting of minds between Prof Ray Norris, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) astrophysicist project leader of the Evolutionary Mapping of the Universe (EMU), and Ghillar Michael Anderson, leader of the Euahlayi people of north-west New South Wales, extraordinary parallels emerge in the two cultures - such as ‘wormholes’ and the pathway to Bullima, the Euahlayi Sky Camp, via the hollow Coolabah tree.

In Star Stories of The Dreaming, Ghillar shares publicly for the first time teachings passed to him as the knowledge holder for his people, the Euahlayi.
