Transcript of Grade three History

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tribes and their culture. These tribes covered the entire mainland of Australia as well as Islands near the coast, including Tasmania. Content information Dreamtime Dance Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders were the first culture to migrate to Australia 50,000 to 65,000 years ago. The First Australians Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have great respect for one another amongst their tribes. Each individual of the group is thought of as an essential or an important member. Everyone had his or her own task within the group. The females gather, while the males hunt. The aboriginals and Torres Strait islanders all have great respect for their elders. The older members in the group are called “grey hairs” as a sign of respect for their age and knowledge. The “grey hairs” usually solve any issues that arise among the group. The Tribes There were approximately three hundred different languages spoken within the aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders tribes in 1788. There is now about seventy- five languages still spoken today. Walpiri is a language that is still regularly used in Alice Springs. This language is also being taught in schools today, with a growing sum of the written literature now being produced in this language. Language To hear the Walapiri language, click on the following link. The land is not just soil, rocks or minerals to the tribes, but a whole environment that is looked after by its people. The land was known as the core of all spirituality.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders cared for their land in another way from others. These tribes lived with the land rather than off the land. They were always taught to protect their land and to never destroy it. How can we inform our generation today that we must protect our environment and not destroy it? Our Future.. How Can we care for our environment like the aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders did? The land Dance performances in the tribes are seen as the core of culture life. They had songs for every occasion. Dancing displayed knowledge about the stories of the ancestral heroes. Unlike painting and singing, dancing is taught at an early age. Music, song and dance is still very important in the aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders lives today. Art Dreamtime for aboriginals were stories that had been passed down from older generations. These stories were about mythical beings that demonstrated how the tribes should behave. It taught the tribes right from wrong. Here are some dreamtime stories. Aboriginals are well known for their dot paintings. Dot paintings are small dots of paint creating symbols. These symbols are created from the dreamtime stories. Traditionally the colours used were very earthy colours such as red, orange and yellow. http://www.daniellesplace.com/html/AustralianCrafts.html http://www.didgeswedoo.com.au/aboriginals.html Year level- Three
