Transcript: Celebrating Lives Basic Beliefs of the Religion VIDEO Ceremonies are very important in all Aboriginal culture. After the death of a person, the community will often perform a set of rituals including painting themselves white, perform rituals, songs and dances and cut themselves to show remorse for the loss of life. Dances, rituals and songs ensure that the spirit leaves the area and returns to its birthplace where it can later, be reborn. Aboriginal burial varies all across Australia. In Northern Australia burial has to stages, while in Central and Southern Australia it is much different. A way that is used in Northern Australia has two processes the primary and secondary. The primary Burial is when the body is laid out on an elevated wooden platform and is then covered in leaves and branches and is left for several months till the flesh has rotted away from the bones. When the bones are collected the secondary burial begins. Sometimes a relative will carry a portion of the bones with them, in other places the bones are wrapped in paper bark and left in a cave to disintegrate with time and in some places the bones are deposited in a naturally hollowed (by termites) tree log and placed in a designated area of bushland.

Life and Death The Indigenous Aboriginal religion, like most other religions, is categorized by having one god or gods who created people and the world around them. Most likely at beginning of time known as the creation period. Aboriginal people are very religious and faithful, but rather than praying to a single god they cannot see, each group generally believes in many different individual gods. These individual gods also known as deities have an image that is often showed in some touchable or recognisable object. This form may be a certain image in a rock in the middle of a landscape or even a plant or animal. However, aboriginal people do not believe that all natural forms possess a soul. This means that they do not believe in animism. Key Beliefs They believe the earth is never-ending. The many ancestral figures that live on the world are also never-ending. These figures are frequently linked with particular animals. For example: Kangaroo-men, Emu-men or Bowerbird-women. As they travelled around the world, these beings shaped human, plant and animal life. They left hints of their journeys in the many natural features of the land. They also believe that they associated groups of people with specific languages and regions. Some groups think there is a supreme existence. The belief of the ‘Dreaming’ continues to control the world and the natural things in it. Life Indigenous Australians believe in life through re- incarnation of the spirit or soul. This again points back to the creation period were it was believed that plants were once people. Aboriginal People do not believe in animism. Animism is a belief that all natural objects like a rock have a soul. They might, however, believe that a certain rock or tree possesses a soul as it represents a god or goddess from the Creation Period. Death When someone dies, the community would hold a ceremony in honour of their life. Basic rituals are performed during this time like painting your body white, conducting a series of songs and dances to ensure that the person’s spirit leaves and returns to his or her birth place, from there it is said they can later be reborn. There is also a burial process that is a bit different around all parts of Australia and is also dependent on the community. The primary burial is when the body is laid out on a wooden platform covered in leaves and plants where it is left for several months. After that, the bones are collected and are covered in red ochre. From there, a relative might keep some of the bones and sometime they are wrapped in barked and disposed of in a cave somewhere. This shows us that to Aboriginal culture, it is more the process of letting the soul move on. Whilst burial plays an important part, it does not play the major role. Indigenous Australian Beliefs Australia holds two Indigenous beliefs, Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders. Each different from the other although share similar characteristics. Claiming scientists believe that our Indigenous Australians came from Asia whilst the two countries were connected by a land bridge 40,000 years ago, although they themselves believe in the dreamtime. Together our Indigenous Australian community contains an approximate 145 languages. Based on the 2011 Census, there is approximately 548 370 Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders. This shows that throughout the Australian population only approximately 2.5% of the population follows these beliefs. 31% of which live in New South Wales, 28.4% in Queensland, 26.8% in Northern Territory, 3.1% in Western Australia, 1.9% in

WA gave Aboriginals the right for state vote the same year. Queensland followed, giving them rights in 1965. THE OUTCOME Bark Petition for land rights by the Yirrkala People, NT Charles Perkins In March 1962, the Menzies Liberal and country part government finally gave the right to vote to all Aboriginal people. -Best known for her leadership in the campaign for the 1967 referendum on Aboriginal Australians. - In 1956, Bandler became a full-time activist, becoming involved in the Aboriginal-Australian Fellowship and the Federal Council for the Advancement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders (FCAATSI), which was formed in 1957. During this period, Bandler worked with her mentors Pearl Gibbs and Jessie Street. As general secretary of FCAATSI, Bandler led the campaign for a constitutional referendum to remove discriminatory provisions from the Constitution of Australia. THE ROOT 1965 THE ROOT "The land in question has been hunting and food gathering land for the Yirrkala tribes from time immemorial!...These places sacred to the Yirrkala People, as well as vital to their livelihood, are in the excised land." - During the 1960s he was spokesperson for the Federal Council for the Advancement of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders. - In 1970 Dixon helped established Australia's first Aboriginal Legal Service in Redfern; he co-founded the Tent Embassy in Canberra in 1972. - He was the first Aboriginal person to be appointed as a Councillor on the Australia Council and is a former Chairman of the Council's Aboriginal Arts Board. In 1983 Dixon was named the first Aboriginal of the Year. Freedom Rides 1965 THE ROOT THE OUTCOME In August 1966, Aboriginal pastoral workers walked off the job on the vast Vesteys' cattle station at Wave Hill in the Northern Territory. At first they expressed their unhappiness with their poor working conditions and disrespectful treatment. Conversations between stockmen who had worked for Vesteys and Dexter Daniels, the North Australian Workers' Union Aboriginal organiser, led to the initial walk off. All these events, the Bark Petition, Freedom Rides in NSW, and the Wave Hill Walk-Off meant that PM Sir Harold Holt was compelled to redress the ‘White Australia’ policy. With the mounting public support and pressure for a referendum, Prime Minister Holt finally gave it to Australians to vote on. An overwhelming 90.7% voted ‘yes’! The Referendum was a fantastic win for the Aboriginal movement for equality. This win gave citizenship, which meant Aboriginal people were able to move around freely, have a choice in governments and finally have policy made by the Commonwealth government, which would mean the same laws, instead of different ones depending on
Transcript: Indigenous Australian How do they live? Indigenous Australians Aboriginal people have been living in the rainforests of the Wet Tropics region for many thousands of years. Some stories handed down over the generations relate to times of most recent volcanic activity, while archeological evidence indicates occupation of the region for at least 40,000 years By Jasmyn Before the invasion, Aboriginal people lived throughout Australia. Here, people seem to have moved seasonally between permanent settlements near the sea and others at the headwaters of the coast rivers.
Transcript: Indigenous Australian Views on the Solar System What they Observed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people distinguished planets from the background stars, noted the changing positions of planets in the sky over days and months, observed their changing positions relative to each other, and characteristics of their journey across the sky. This helped us to understand that planets including the Earth orbit the sun and all at different speeds Contributions to the solar system of Indigenous Australians The Orbit System The Orbit System The Aboriginal people notcied that all planets moved across the sky along a sort of road, following each other in a close-to-straight line. This was known as the 'dreaming road'. This observation is because all planets orbit the sun on a close to flat plane. Songs How were their traditions passed down The Indigenous Australians took what they knew about the solar system and included that into their songs. This means that more and more people start to understand the solar system after the song is sung by one person to the next. Navigation Navigation The indigenous Australians used the planets, sun and moon to help them navigate around Australia. Like many other early means of direction the aligned the stars to determine which way they were going. Keeping in mind of course that this is before compasses.
