Eight Wurundjeri Seasons in Melbourne, The. By Jim Poulter

(1 customer review)

Previous attempts to define Aboriginal seasons in the Melbourne area have been unduly influenced by European concepts of four seasons, each occupying a fixed three month period. Aboriginal society however worked on a 13 month lunar cycle with each season relating not only to the prevailing weather, but also to the particular human activities associated with each season. In close consultation with Wurundjeri Elders the author has identified eight traditional seasons in the Melbourne area, each of which has a predominant seasonal activity.
