My New Dragon

Ok as I said I now have only one Dragon guide at the moment,but I don't think I could cope with anymore with this Dragon around!!!!

This new Dragon is old and he is now a rich ochre colour with gold under tones.
His name is Rtapu Cai which means Silent One. Rtapu comes from Arnhem Land.
Arnhem Land in Australia is the Aboriginal homeland where the Dreamtime lives in song and dance, where legend, myth and history interweave with today’s realities, where innumerable sacred sites are forever hidden from prying eyes, and where the white man (or any other non-Aboriginal person) is not allowed to enter.
This is no doubt a romanticised view of Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory in the Top End of Australia but it may be closer to reality than we think.
Yes, you can visit the peripheries of Arnhem Land, and glimpse a vision of what may lie within, but if you are non-Aboriginal, this is where it ends, and the mysteries of Arnhem Land remain.
Surprisingly, this Aboriginal homeland still carries its European name (after a Dutch ship which made the first European sighting of this region in 1623). But among the people who live there are many Aboriginal place names which invoke their Aboriginality and their past.
Occupying about 97,000 square kilometres of forests and spectacular rivers and gorges east of the Northern Territory capital of Darwin, Arnhem Land is an Aboriginal homeland and sacred to its people.
Those who visit Kakadu and venture east to Ubirr have only to look farther east beyond the East Alligator River to where Arnhem Land begins and no non-Aboriginal person is allowed except with express permission.
The earliest history of Eastern Arnhem Land is recorded in the paintings, dances and songs of the Yolngu , the Aboriginal people of the region, which tell of creation ancestors bringing lands and waters, people, animals and plants into being and laying down the Law that governs them all. The Law defines who owns and manages the lands and waters, essential features of Yolgnu identity and culture.

When I get anymore information about him i will pass it on.

Blessed Be
