The Aboriginal Spirit

We feel very close to people’s spirit, and people from the spirit world let us know things.  That’s the Aboriginal tradition.  Speak that way to any Aboriginal, and she’ll understand exactly what you are talking about.  I would tell my children that often the spirit of someone that has passed on will come to you in a dream, or you’ll get a warning that a friend or relation is sick.  Something strange happens, and you know it’s a message from the spirit world.  Aboriginals live alert to these things all of their lives, but we don’t tell people about them.  We are afraid of being laughed at over things which are absolutely true.  There’s something there.  I don’t understand it myself, but we know it’s there.  We’re not academics or scientists to work these things out, but the main thing is that we believe these things happen.

I have heard white people say who have spent time with Aboriginals, like here at the mission with us, that nothing happened to them in the white world the way things happen to them since they entered the Aboriginal world.  They get feelings, as if someone’s telling them an important message.  And they might get signs from outside, like a dream or a bird.  But if you heard Aboriginals talking about these things around a campfire, you would think we were talking a foreign language.
