Transcript of Gold Rush Immigrants In Australia

Life For Gold
Rush Migrants Australian God Rush Food Clothing Schooling How were they treated? Religion Housing Chinese Gold
Rush Migrants Chinese Immigrants were treated unfairly, they were hated for being successful and shunned for being different.
Anti-Chinese racism was ripe and violent, with many Chinese gold miners being killed by White-Europeans. By the end of the day, people were too tired to do anything but try to relax.
However, there were some educated people in the diggings, including journalists or other freelance writers who kept diaries of life on the gold fields. They would hold classes for the children in return for payment for their tuition. Classes might be held in the teacher's tent, or more often, in the open under a shady tree. Later, religious groups would set up schools. The Chinese miners spent their leisure time differently to the White Europeans.
Most shunned alcohol, some smoked opium and almost all played mahjong and the Chinese lotteries. The Chinese lotteries gained favour with Europeans in the 1870s but otherwise, differences in the way they enjoyed themselves only made the tense relationship between Chinese and European miners worse. Since the Chinese Miners came from a different culture, they were used to different foods than what was made readily available, so they ate a mix of Chinese food that reflected their heritage and cheap goods.
The Chinese Miners cuisine differed to the White
Europeans, but some things were similar, such as damper and porridge. Thank You For Watching By Tristan Rios 9C The houses Chinese people lived in were on the claims they were allocated. They had between 1 and 3 square meters of land to work and live on. Conditions were unsanitary, due to the open toilet trenches. Many diggers lived in tents, or even rough, open bark shelters. Those who stayed longer sometimes built larger slab hut dwellings, but these were still very basic. Sometime after, settlements were built near the gold-fields. Permanent houses were built, or people lived in 'Boarding Houses'. Whenever enough Chinese people congregated in one area for long enough, they would build a Joss House as a place for worshipping 'Hon Sing'.

He was the founder of the Ming dynasty, a period that is considered the greatest in Chinese history. Hon Sing preached the three virtues of Unity, Courage and Honesty. Background Music-

Om nom nom How were they treated? Housing Religion . . Even though the "Afghans' " help was greatly appreciated, they were also treated unfairly as racism was common because of their religion, looks, and competition against traditional transport workers. Wherever the Afghan camel drivers settled, they lived in a separate part of town
Their areas became known as Afghan or Ghan Town. There was contact between the Aboriginal and Afghan groups but almost no contact between the Europeans and those two groups. The Afghan people performed their prayers five times a day, wherever they where. The Afghan people worshiped at a place called a mosque, which is referred to in Arabic as a ‘Masjid.’ A mosque is a place to worship their god on prayer mats. It is a place to gather for daily prayers, festivals and religious education. Afghan Camel Drivers Did you really scroll over here? These circles are empty for a purpose... It's called decoration... Blarg Whoop Subtitle Clothing Entertainment The Camel Drivers would wear clothes suited to long days under the sun, such as long sleeved shirts and long pants. It was said that they liked to walk on bare feet.
The majority of the Camel Drivers wore turbans. The Afghan peoples ideas of entertainment were quite similar the Chinese Miners in the way that they avoided alcohol. They spent alot of time caring for their animals.
Since they were nearly always working, they didn't get that much leisure time. Food The Afghan Camel Drivers ate a mix of halal meat and damper when they were traveling. When they were settled they ate fruit, nuts, halal meat and other staple foods. First Camel in Australia The Phillips brothers, (Henry Weston Phillips, George Phillips, G M Phillips) bought nine camels at Tenerife in the Canary Islands.
Four or six of the animals were loaded aboard the SS Apolline, which had been chartered by Henry in London.
The Apolline, under Captain William Deane, docked at Port Adelaide in South Australia on 12 October 1840 and the sole surviving beast, named Harry, became the first camel in Australia. Joss House http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcwygO3XV8U
