    An Aboriginal Legend Ages ago--in the dream-time--many of the beautiful birds and timid animals now living in the bush were men. One day, towards sunset, a tribe of blacks were returning from the hunt, when they met a very old man carrying a long spear and an empty "dilly" bag.   In other legends it is mentioned that the ancestors used to fight between themselves, and new things would be created during those fights, such as rivers, hills, mountains and lakes. Again in the Aboriginal myths we have the same pattern of gods arriving from the sky—gods with powers—and creating humans, who then fight amongst themselves.
