Warnayarra The Rainbow Snake

Warnayarra   The Rainbow Snake - Pamela Lofts I loved reading this book when I was a kid.

This time around I read it with my own children, who also love the story of Warnayarra.

Dreamtime stories like this one are fascinating to me, especially since settlers tried hard to wipe out the indigenous ancestors and their cultures. Many versions of this story can be found through many Aboriginal cultures right across Australia. This story is just one of many, passed down through the generations from elder to youngster, in what I believe, is a way of ensuring the people stay one with the elements.
