What Was the Rainbow Serpent In Australian Aboriginal Mythology and Where Does the Rainbow Serpent Live?

The Rainbow Serpent is a powerful figure in Aboriginal mythology, and each Aboriginal tribe has its own myths about it.

The Aborigines believed that the rainbow serpent dwelled in rivers, pools, and lakes.

When the rainbow serpent became angry, it left its watery home and caused storms in the sky.

When its anger waned, the storm ended and you can see its rainbow in the sky.
