Daramah, the Great Spirit watches.
It is night, and the seven sisters, a group of stars, rise up and travel from east to west. Three of the sisters, representing the physical, mental and spiritual, circle anti-clockwise around the connectedness rock. They go back in time, creating a vortex as they circle. The seven sisters begin to blow in the wind of the great wind spirit, Kooro-Kori.
It is tempting, in a modern context, to consider the relationship between the Yuin people's 'seven sisters' and the constellation of the Southern Cross. Especially, since three sisters go back into the vortex, which leave the four to form the constellation. I cannot find anything to support this, however. Being mischievous, and to stir the pot, there is a representation of the Southern Cross on our national flag, and all except one of those stars has seven points. It is satisfying to be mischievous at times!
But, I digress. As the performance continued, the song men came more to the fore (they were all strapped with transmitters, and the wire-less connectivity worked a charm).
Here they are in all their splendour. Going clockwise, from top left we have Richard Green, Matthew Doyle and the imposing brother Cecil Mcleod. The young lad on the didge I could not identify. The combination of voice, clap-sticks, and didge was very powerful.
Tomorrow: Our Dreaming draws to a close as the Death Adder and the Rainbow Serpent join together to create the Tree Tribes and the Totems.
