Bogong Moth Dreaming, Australia

Today according to Australian Eastern Standard Time when this item was posted
Six aboriginal clans used to meet at Mungabareena (‘the gathering place’), east of Albury, for the Bogong moth (Agrotis infusa) feast. At the end of November, the healthiest in these clans made this annual journey, while the elderly and babies stayed behind. Six of the seven clans met; the seventh, Minjambutta (or Minjamurra) the Echidna totem people stayed behind on their own lands.
