Heb je een vraag over songlines?
Stel hem aan mensen met roots in de Aboriginal cultuur.
Als je hem stelt aan wetenschappers of ‘kenners’ zonder roots krijg je waarschijnlijk een beperkte interpretatie of een onzinverhaal.
Oude culturen die intensief samenleefden met de natuur waren anders vormgegeven en men leefde primitiever als wij nu doen, maar de mensen waren absoluut niet dom. Ze hebben hun intelligentie anders ontwikkeld als moderne westerse wetenschappers. Hun kennis over ecosystemen is verweven met en verwerkt in hun kunst, hun tradities en hun spiritualiteit.
Deze video’s maken de eeuwenoude songlines van de Australische aboriginals begrijpelijk voor westerse mensen.

The myth of Aboriginal stories being myths | Jacinta Koolmatrie | TEDxAdelaideFor more than 50,000 years there were over 200 different groups of people living on the landmass now referred to as Australia. All of these groups formed a strong understanding of the land. This knowledge was passed down through thousands of generations. Who holds this knowledge today and is it respected in Australian society? Jacinta Koolmatrie explores these questions and connects them to her own experiences as an Adnyamathanha person. Jacinta Koolmarie is an Adnyamathanha and Ngarrindjeri person who grew up in Port Augusta. Last year she won the Flinders University’s Ken Wanganeen Medal as the most outstanding Indigenous student for her studies in archaeology.
Jacinta is currently working on her Masters thesis, researching Adnyamathanha yura malka (rock art), with a focus on centring Indigenous knowledge. At the beginning of 2017, Jacinta began working at the South Australian Museum with the aim of changing the way museums portray and work with Aboriginal people. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Sacred Sites and Biodiversity—Scenes from Standing on Sacred GroundThis clip contains three scenes from Standing on Sacred Ground—in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Ethiopia. We've frequently been asked the question, "What is the tangible value of sacred places?" Our scientific, materialistic culture demands proof. These three film scenes answer the question. According to the World Bank, indigenous people make up 4% of the world's population, control 22% of the Earth's land surface, and on that land is 80% of the remaining biodiversity on the planet. Indigenous people are obviously doing a remarkable job respecting and conserving the diversity of life around them. Within their territories are sacred places that provide the anchor, the center, the cultural values and customary laws that connect native communities to wise ancestors and future generations. These are the reasons that sacred places and indigenous land rights are so important and need to be better respected and protected.

Got A Lot Going On - Yarn Safe Music Video | headspaceAboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people in remote communities worked with headspace, Indigenous Hip Hop Projects (IHHP) and Indigenous creative agency Gilimbaa to create the 'Got a lot going on' music video. The hip hop video was written and performed by the young people themselves and captures the broad range of issues they are facing, including racism, stress, drugs and isolation, but stresses there is 'no shame in talking it out'.
Yarn Safe is a space specifically designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to discuss any mental health challenges they are facing. You can find out more about at: https://headspace.org.au/yarn-safe/

Song for the Rainbow SerpentThree percent of the world's zinc lies beneath the serpentine riverbed of northern Australia's McArthur River — and the zinc will soon be headed to China's steel mills. For Aboriginal Australians, the entire river is respected as the Dreamtime pathway of the Rainbow Serpent, one of the most important of the ancestor spirits who formed the land and still enforces the law.
Xstrata Zinc is starting to excavate an open pit mine at McArthur River and is building a 5.5 kilometer diversion channel to redirect water around the deep hole the mining company is digging.
When we tried to enter the area with traditional owner Harry Lanson, the mining company threatened to arrest us for trespassing and ordered us to leave. As Harry Lanson asserted his right to visit the land he was born on, to show us his sacred sites, a helicopter landed within 100 feet of our "mob" — which included more than a dozen children.
We retreated back down the road to the river. Even after the humiliation and stress, the Aboriginal women proceeded with the dance they had come to do next to the river, to honor the female form of the Rainbow Serpent, which in English they refer to as a "mermaid."
This video was produced by the Sacred Land Film Project, http://SacredLand.org, a project of Earth Island Institute. To deepen public understanding of sacred places, indigenous cultures and environmental justice, the Film Project produces a variety of media and educational materials—films, videos, DVDs, articles, photographs, school curricula and other materials. The Sacred Land Film Project uses journalism, organizing and activism to rekindle reverence for land, increase respect for cultural diversity, stimulate dialogue about connections between nature and culture, and protect sacred lands and diverse spiritual practices.
Its latest project, Standing on Sacred Ground, http://StandingOnSacredGround.org, is a four-part series that chronicles indigenous people in eight communities around the world standing up for their traditional sacred lands in defense of cultural survival, human rights and the environment. Watch them stand against industrial mega-projects, consumer culture, resource extraction, competing religions, tourists and climate change.
