It can also grow back after being dormant as root stock after any drought years. The vitamin C-rich fruit are 1-3 cm in diameter and yellow in colour when fully ripe. They dry on the bush and look like raisins. These fruits have a strong pungent smell of tamarillo and caramel that makes them popular for use in sauces and condiments. They can be obtained either whole or ground, with the ground product (sold as “kutjera powder”) easily added to bread mixes, salads, sauces, cheese dishes, chutneys, stews or mixed into butter.

Merne Akatyerre (Arrenrnte language) means Bush Sultana in the Northern Territory. It is a nutrient fruit. Sultana plants are low prickly shrub with soft green leaves and yellow and purple flower.

Dreamtime:

Australian Aboriginal people tell several stories about seven sisters from the Dreaming Time which is the time of creation of the universe by their ancestors. This story of seven sisters originated from the culture of stars in the Taurus constellation.

There were seven sisters who were all beautiful and elegant. Every man who saw them wished to marry one of the sisters. One day the sisters went into the bush with their digging sticks to gather foods including wood ants, witchetty grubs and honey ants. After a successful expedition, they sat down to enjoy a feast, never imagining that a lonely warrior named Warrumma was hiding close by, watching them. While the sisters were eating, Warrumma took away two of the digging sticks and hid them. All the sisters looked for the two lost sticks in vain but eventually the five sisters who still had their digging sticks sadly left without the two sisters whose sticks had been taken.

Clever Warrumma came out of hiding and firmly grabbed the two sisters by their waists. He promised the girls that he would take good care of them and would marry them. The two girls decided that they would pretend to agree to Warrumma?s plan, while looking out for the opportunity to escape. One day they were asked to cut pine bark to make a fire. As soon as the girls climbed the pine trees, those trees started to grow right up to sky. Warrumma shouted in vain for the girls to come down. But they kept climbing and were soon warmly welcomed to the sky by the five sisters anxiously waiting for them, If you observe constellation carefully you may see the two freed girls as they arrive at their sisters? camp in the sky.

Dreamtime:

In the Dreamtime all the earth was sleeping. Nothing moved; nothing grew. One day the rainbow serpent woke up from her slumber and came out of the ground. She travelled long distance and became tired; curled up and went to sleep. Her body was heavy which left marks of her sleeping and her winding tracks. Then she came back to the original starting place. She found a hole at the place and thought that there were some frogs. She asked the frog to come out of the hole. The frogs were slow to come out of the hole. They drank too much water and their bellies were heavy. They eventually came out. Amusingly the Rainbow Serpent tickled their stomachs and the frogs laughed. When the frogs laughed, the water came out of their tummy. This is how the lakes and rivers were filled with water, and grass and trees sprung across the land. One day when the Rainbow Serpent turned around, she saw an emu sitting close to a big tree. The Rainbow Snake liked the Emu and became her friend. Emu told the snake that she was laying eggs. A few days later some small emu chicks started walking around. Rainbow Snake became happy and decided to stay. Rainbow Snake also made laws for the inhabitants of the place allowing everybody to live in peace.

SPIRIT DREAMING BROWN

Dreamtime:

Indigenous Australians are one among the native people on earth with traditions and customs going back to approx. 50000 years. Their belief system is built on their value & respect towards the land and the dreamtime. Though their dreaming about land changes between different groups, the idea of creation from their ancestors, stays similar; ancestors and forefathers sprang up from underneath the soil as spirits and started building mountains, rivers, waterholes, trees, and light garden for future generations.
These ancestral spirits are considered as the creators and they are part of their day to day life. Aboriginals belief death as a transition to another life, where they consider the spirit taking different form of life after death. Spirits / soul of these ancestral beings are transferred to a different shape such as a tree, river, mountain, garden etc.
