Australian Aborigines - Referat
Topic: Australian Aborigines
First I like to tell you something about the Australian Aborigines. I find suggest that Australian Aborigines civilisation is one of the oldest in the world. In the past the Aborigines were native Australians.
The Aborigines walked from place to place and hunted animals. They were hunters and collectors. The Aborigines had Boomerangs to knock out and kill their prey. They lived from fire-stick farming.
Many Aborigines lived in the desert of the outback. The outback is for the Australian a wide, hot and almost empty centre of their country. When you travel to the outback you should have a lot of water. But Aborigines donīt see the desert as a hot and infertile place.
Almost 300 different languages were used by the Aborigines. Today there are about 50.
The Aborigines have a very long tradition.
Their way of explaining that they are the owners of the land is through songs, stories and dances of the creation Ancestors. They have another religion as we have.
They lived in large family groups, each with its own language and culture.
For the Aborigines, married was more like a contract between parts of the tribe. Art is a central part of the live of Aborigines and takes many forms.
Second I tell you something about the Europeans when they came to Australian in 1788.
5.000 years later the Europeans came to Australia and took them her land. The Europeans said that they ill and the Aborigines helped them. But then the Europeans brought them alcohol and drugs and the Aborigines were ill and addicted. Many of this people died.
White Australiens found it difficult to give the natives all civil rights, they never really understood the Aborigineīs way of live.
Today the Aborigines live in a country which is different from the Australia of 1788.
But all Aborigines are proud of their culture and they never forget his old traditions.
