The Rainbow Serpent or Rainbow Snake is a common deity, often a creator god, in Aboriginal Australia mythology. It is named for the shape of a rainbow and the shape of a snake. When a rainbow is seen in the sky, it is said to be the Rainbow Serpent moving from one waterhole to another. It is viewed as a giver of life, through its association with water, but can be a destructive force if angered. The rainbow serpent is one of the most common and well known Aboriginal stories, and it is very important to their society.
