Australian Aboriginal Culture
an unbroken and age-old association with the Australian continent - extending at least 50,000 years into the past - Australian Aboriginal culture
can proudly claim to be the oldest living culture on earth.
During the millennia, Australian Aborigines developed a unique culture and technology - or more accurately, many related
but distinct cultures. Hundreds of different languages were spoken in different regions, and many different customs and practices developed, finely
adapted to life within the varied ecosystems of the Australian continent.
Australian Aborigines know five seasons depending on rainfall rather than temperature. The nomadic way of life followed by most
Aboriginal groups for tens of thousands of years was well-adapted to extreme variations in climate and food supply.
Then, just over 200 years ago, people with a very different culture and technology began to invade Australia.
The last two centuries have been devastating for Aboriginal people. Deep scars remain from the brutal impact of European colonisation
and its aftermath.
the positive side, Aboriginal culture in Australia is now assured of survival - and attracts more and more interest worldwide.
Here are some resources to help introduce you to Aboriginal Culture, history and society:
