Whale will lead the story telling about relationships between living things evolving over time and adapting to changing oceans, lands and rivers. Whale Dreaming stories will reveal connections between health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and the planet – physical, biological, emotional and spiritual.
Whale will lead and narrate a journey from the sea and then onto land, as in the Whale Dreaming stories of the Yuin and Gumbaynggirr peoples. That journey will reflect how Western scientists understand the evolution of the whale: The whale came from the sea, evolved on land into an almost wolf-like organism and eventually became amphibious and went back into the ocean to become the whales we see today. All mammals evolved from the ocean to be air-breathing organisms.
