  • 1. The Aboriginal People The Aboriginal people have been living forover 60’000 years and they used to use verybasic utensils including bowls, baskets andmade very basic huts called ‘humpies’. This is called a ‘Humpy’.
  • 2. Languages There are over 500 different language groups in Australia including Wadi Wadi. They also expanded their thoughts by dancing at special ceremonies
  • 3. Spirituality The Aboriginal People told dreamtime stories and that meant, they were expressing their beliefs. They mainly expressed their beliefs to their children, then when they’re older, they’d tell their children until the present day. Sometimes they painted themselves with ochre. Ochre only came in Aboriginal colours which are: Yellow, Red, Orange, Brown and Black.
  • 4. Family Life and Roles The Aboriginal People had certain roles in the family. The men hunted and the women gathered.
  • 5. Traditional Food The main foods of the traditional Aboriginal People are Fish, Kangaroo, Emu, Witchetty Grubs, Nuts and Berries.
  • 6. Traditional Implements and Tools Aboriginal tools are used to grind, smash, cut and collect. The traditional tools were made of stones and sticks. The Aboriginal People made baskets from dried tall grass that gets threaded in and out of itself. They also used the tall grass to tie up the stones to the sticks to make the tools. To make bowls they carved out a chunk of a tree and the cut it hollow. They made boomerangs doing the same thing. They used stones to crack open nut shells and berry seeds. The women’s main utensil is the ‘Digging Stick’ which is used to dig up witchetty grubs and insects to cook over a fire and eat ( no, there were no marshmallows)!
