The Gales

Incredibly evocative image of the colonization of Australia, more than 50,000 years ago, as told from an aboriginal perspective!

"The gales brought us here. They picked us up from the reef out at sea, they tossed us and rolled us and pushed us up high on the sandy head and now we lie here in the sun."

-- Oodgeroo Nunuccal, Australian aboriginal poet, Queensland.
