The Rainbow Snake is a common deity, often a creator god depicted in the Indigenous art. It is named for the obvious identification between the shape of a rainbow and the shape of a snake. Some believe that the link between snake and rainbow suggests the cycle of the seasons and the importance of water in human life.
When the rainbow is seen in the sky, it is said to be the Rainbow Snake moving from one waterhole to another, and the divine concept explained why some waterholes never dried up when drought struck. There are innumerable names and stories associated with the serpent, all of which communicate the significance and power of this being within Aboriginal traditions. It is viewed as a giver of life, through its association with water, but can be a destructive force if angry.
The Rainbow Snake is one of the most common and well-known Aboriginal stories, very important to Aboriginal society. The Rainbow Snake is one of the oldest continuing religious beliefs in the world and continues to be a cultural influence today.
