Indigenous people from all over Australia live in Darwin. These people come from remote communities around the NT and urban areas and cities from all over Australia. Despite coming from all over Australia, these people will often have consistent stories about Little People. This seminar will provide information about Indigenous people’s beliefs in Little People and will show the consistencies in beliefs, stories, experiences and descriptions about Little People that exist among Indigenous people living in Darwin.

The seminar is based on a paper that the presenter is publishing in an academic journal.
