AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINALS: BEFORE CONTACT
What do we know about Aboriginal Australians prior to European contact? Historians have used evidence and artefacts to develop a number of theories about when and how Aboriginals migrated to Australia. In contrast, Aboriginal groups have a shared belief system of the Dreamtime, which explains their origins. This clip explores these different perspectives.
For more than 50,000 years there were over 200 different groups of people living on the landmass now referred to as Australia. All of these groups formed a strong understanding of the land. This knowledge was passed down through thousands of generations. Who holds this knowledge today and is it respected in Australian society? Jacinta Koolmatrie explores these questions and connects them to her own experiences as an Adnyamathanha person. Jacinta Koolmarie is an Adnyamathanha and Ngarrindjeri person who grew up in Port Augusta.
Dust Echoes is a series of twelve beautifully animated Dreamtime stories from Central Arnhem Land, telling stories of love, loyalty, duty to country and Aboriginal custom and law.
