Capitalisation[change source]

I think the text runs wild with capitals, but in any case the issue should be thought about, discussed and standardised throughout Aus articles. What about "Dreaming"? Surely "Dreamtime" is the noun, which if it is a proper noun can be capitalised, but "Dreaming"? Never! Macdonald-ross (talk) 17:28, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Dreaming is often used as a proper noun; it often replaces Dreamtime as it perhaps captures the concept that it is happening now and does not refer to some mythic past. The term aboriginal is used as both an adjective and a proper noun, although it is often a politically sensitive term.--Peterdownunder (talk) 21:35, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
