3. The Pleiades in Aboriginal Mythology [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 5 No 3 (Sep 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents The Pleiades in Aboriginal Mythology J. E. AITCHISON Recently I began some investigations into the possibility that Aboriginal myths might have some synonymity with the myths of other cultures. My initial intent was to draw on Aboriginal myths related to the planets and major constellations and try to find parallels. For my primary source of data I have been using an exceptionally well-presented anthology of Aboriginal stories called Australian Dreaming.(1) The path of my research ... me into the realm of catastrophism because much of the content of Aboriginal myth has to do with geographic and climatic change: there is no slow, orderly procession in any of them- the Aborigines never heard of Darwinism. The Aborigines had, however, witnessed a series of events associated with the Pleiades, and it was a story woven around this constellation which lit my candle of awareness. In a myth associated with the Clarence River Basin of northern New South Wales it is stated definitely that great climatic changes occurred when one of ...

Australian Aboriginal legends about the "Dreamtime," the time before the creation of the present world are rich ... references to the heavens. In contrast, present-day Aboriginals have stated to anthropologists that most of the rock art that does not depict animals, plants, or humans is "abstract," with little mention of celestial significance, with the exception of a few Morning Star and comet depictions. A recent visit to several sites and a survey of published samples of rock art at other sites turned up a number of depictions of animals which appear to relate to Dreamtime legends involving celestial groupings. In addition, at two sites, there are ...
