It doesn't come down to skin colour and geographical location it comes down to an ability to read.

Yes but if I have no Aboriginal friends, don't vacation in aboriginal areas and haven't read any aboriginal literature since high school it does.

Much the same of me quoting passages of the YiJing or the writings of Mengzi to others and then saying - 'its all about the ability to read'.

Bookstore: 'Tales from the Aborigines' by Bill Harney

Of interest will be The Toba Super Erruption

Because you can find all sort of things:

A long time ago, a hunter called Inetina was spearing fish on this large reef beside which we now fished, and as he walked between the deep coral pools he heard an angry voice call his name.
Turning quickly, in an attitude of defense, he beheld a large open clam shell, and within its depths was the angry face of a human being. As Inetina looked upon it in amazement the thing spoke angrily.
'I am the head-man of your tribe, yet you stabbed at my shell with your spear as you went by...you are a fool to act as only a woman would do.'
At that terrible insult of being classed as a woman, Inetina picked up a large stone and hurling it with all his might he drove it into the creature's mouth, and and as it died a great red cloud came out of the sea and closed in upon the land.
'Everywhere sickness,' explained my narrator. 'Everybody died in their camps and on the hunt; their bones lay white over the land as does the dried coral on the reefs of the shores...
'And when drifted away only two people were alive of all the tribe...a young man and his sister...By proper blackfellow law they cannot marry, but a spirit came to the pair in the night and told them for the tribe they must have a family...so that brother and sister became man and wife and their children formed our present Udwadja tribe.' - The Story of a Red cloud.

This one has a supervolcano motif that we cant ignore - all that red cloud of sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere...killing every thing.
