Good quote at end:

it’s a challenging but beautiful way to think about the confluence of story and time. Indigenous story starts in the distant past and lives today. Time in traditional Indigenous Australia, meanwhile, is not merely a collection of fragmentary moments connected by the calendar but the continuum of past and present.
