The Insight Of The Tribes In Australia

The Insight Of The Tribes In Australia

The history of aboriginals is often a common known fact; however, to those unfamiliar with the tracks of history. Here how it began. The land of Australia was populated with over a 750,000 people from the indigenous settlement and despite the fact that it was all understood that although they were aborigines they too had tribes; hence, before the colonists arrived to Australia – they lived peaceful and tranquil lives. As, we all know that this is history – Lt. James Cook a famous sea explorer landed in Australia and as he realized they had not such a huge and vast civilized culture although there were many indigenous tribes around the whole of Sydney (earlier known as terra nullius) they were pretty much the same as any ordinary human beings except they had very different lifestyles. Aboriginal people and their mythologies run deep and have been told/rather orated to the generation by generation way down the lines – Aboriginals are now a very famous historical aspect in Australia and yet; you may still find certain tribes well put-together yet still living in void. 

The people and their culture and beliefs

Well, what can we say about their culture, art, dance and other various forms of understanding. Their arts are mainly hanging on the walls of art museums and are generally very famous. Australian aboriginal art has been handed down by centuries and whatever their culture and lifestyle may be it seems very different compared to the people living in the great city life.

Traditional aboriginal art has been in fact one of the best ways in which people/Aussies have preserved their artifacts because it pursues other various ethnic backgrounds. Although, Australia has developed and long before captain Lt. James cook discovered – was titled the new world. It was founded and ensured to be protecting the aboriginal clan; however – they were struck with infamous diseases and were harmed by the convicts and sailors of whom carried such sicknesses as smallpox, and influenza. It was further way back; when they discovered Australia that it was a place sent for prisoners to be reformed. Hence, there tribes/clans died away.

Preserving history is a way to know who you are

However, what eventually happened was that they persuaded the English Gov. to preserve the native sites and are till to date being under protective glances. These people are the first and most highlighted of Australian history. They were the ancestors of all native Australians are in very understanding mounds of achieving the history – they have a different touché of everything they mastered. Their primitive goals were fishing and farming, and were mostly friendly. It is defined to many that their lives were peaceful and humble. They believed in no system nor did they have any laws. They lived free and wild. A perfect amination movie called Pocahontas is the perfect setting of the aboriginal culture and tribe. Walt Disney has ensured that he captured and ensured that their lives be somewhat relatable and for ourselves to be reminded of the historical aspect of any country. Therefore, trying to preserve history is an important task we must all try and achieve.
