Summary
"In Australian Aboriginal cultures, mental maps are built on songs and ceremony. These songlines and other navigational tools enabled Aboriginal Australians to navigate across the country, trading artefacts and sacred stories. Ray Norris the narrator firstly acknowledges Yidumduma Bill Harney who was unable to speak due to illness, discussing his life and people before moving onto the mian body of the discussion on how Indigenous people used stories and other navigational tools to cross country."
