Ceremonies and Stories

Wiradjuri stories maintain the connections between people, sky, water, earth and the creator spirits, such as Biyaami (Baiame) the spiritual creator. Ceremony was usually expressed in dance and song and painting. Important stories were passed on through oral tradition. All these forms told of traditional lore, looking after country, respect for one another and creation stories of how the land and the people came to be.

There are different stories across the Wiradjuri Nation. Some stories are only for families, as they hold spiritual connection between people and their totems.
Many people read stories and see the initial morale, but as they read deeper and explore their thinking, the stories contain so much more information of seasons, hunting patterns, behaviour and the rules of society.
