What does "Aborigine" mean? "Aborigine" means " from start"
or "that who was from the begining" Aborigines came to Australia about 40.000 - 65.000 years ago, probably from Asia. They are nomads. They live close to nature. Their main activities are hunting and fishing. Aborigines - The Natives of Australia by Agnieszka Janusz & Agnieszka Kud Aborigines usually have:
dark skin
curly or wavy hair
oblong head
massive teeth
black or brown hair
large nose Their traditions Uluru By legend, Uluru (called also Ayers Rock) was created by two boys playing with a clay. At the foot of Uluru are caves with precious painting that depict ancestors of Aborigines. Uluru is notable for appearing to change colour at different time of the day and year. Religion of Aborigines is strongly related with nature and land - humans' mother. They workship land and belive that ghosts formed it in the past, called "Dreamtime". Aboriginal music Didgeridoo is musical instrument that looks like gigantic flute. That's probably the oldest type of musical instrument in the world. It's made of hollow branch of eucalyptus. What's Woggabaliri? The food from Australian bush has its own name – Bush Tucker Food. That are: herbs, roots, seeds, edible leaves, fruits, wild birds, kangaroos, snakes, lizards, turtles and ostriches.

Body Painting Australian Aboriginal people use different types of body decorations such as body painting, face painting, ornaments, feathers and scaring. All those are more than just art. They all have a meaning, they relate to laws, religions and conventions. They are means of communication - they show what age and status the person has and what relationship the person has to his/her family group. Body Painting Aborigines nowadays Body Paiting Bush Tucker Food Who are they? How do they look like? What do they believe in? How they

During them Aborigines reproduce old tales about past of Australia. Different symbols are useing in body painting, which tell a lot about the person. Combinations of symbols can tell a story. A person can’t just go and change his/her painting and people don’t paint themselves – it is a task of a relative. An import part of Aborigines diet are insects. They roast meat on a bonfire. In bush aborigines find some delicious food like quandong fruits or swamp cabbage. Currently most of them lives in special reserves in West Australia, Queensland and North Territory.
