Ngaanyatjarra people believe the earth was created by numerous mythical beings. The earth was initially flat and featureless and from this flatness rose ancestral spirits who, during their journal across the country, brought into existence all the features of the landscape as well as all the animals that live in it. All of this is part of what Ngaanyatjarra people call the Tjukurrpa and what non-Aboriginals have commonly referred to as “the dreaming”. These stories are passed on from one generation to the next while everyone is sitting around the fire
