For Aboriginal people living a traditional life in the desert areas of Australia, water, and knowledge of where it could be found, was essential to survival.
Ceremonies keep alive the memory of both the creation and the location of these sites. Aboriginal people meet for ceremonies beside water holes and their birthplaces are generally near one. Special ceremonies are performed seasonally to ensure that rains come to regenerate the plants and to provide food for both animals and people.
