Ethnic Cultures Crossing Borders: People Moving, Cultures Mixing

Aboriginal people in the Central Desert
To us it seems that nobody would be living in a place such as the central desert in Australia.  However, the indegenous people of Australia have been living there ever since time began.  The holiest place in their mythology is Uluru (Ayers Rock) and they are handing down their stories there to future generations.  Their culture has influenced the art world with their special dyeing process and also with their sand paintings.  Their mythology is teaching us what human beings should strive to e and the Aboriginal people are now letting the world know of their existence and culture in the midst of the desert.
