Indigenous Peoples of Australia to Travel and Meet

 

As far as Australia is concerned, you can’€™t get more original than the Aboriginals. Long before being settled and later developed by the west, the aboriginal people were the rightful people of the land.

Unfortunately their treatment during the occupation was not fair and quite tragic. However, nowadays the government is moving to try and make amends for the past. The Australian government actually issued an €œApology to Australia’s Indigenous Peoples€ back in 2008. This was the first in many moves to try and bring back the aboriginal culture, rights and to correct some of the wrongs made during their history.

Since this apology, the government has invested heavily in the native people, restoring land rights and preserving their history and traditions. Therefore, through this and international media, people visiting Australia are becoming more and more interested in this complicated and beautiful culture.

 

Aboriginal Culture

Aboriginal CultureThe culture is an intricate and interesting one. To really get it, it is best to actually meet with real aboriginal people. You will be surprised by how many presumptions just aren’€™t true, such as the €˜tribal€™ scene … or lack of.

You are also likely to be be mesmerized and amazed by their art, music and way of life. It is colourful, it is skillful and it really is quite hypnotic. The artworks are often painstakingly created in traditional ways, preserving the techniques of the past.

If you really want to see and experience Australia’s outback, then an aboriginal guide is about as good as you are likely to get. They know the land, the plants and the animals. They are a part of this country and will be happy to share it with you. They also know what you can and can’€™t eat, but that doens’€™t always mean you will want to eat what you can eat.

 

How to Support Keeping Aboriginal Alive

This culture is strong, but the people and groups need support. So, when you visit Australia and you are looking to learn and experience their culture, please ensure that it is via Aboriginals themselves.

To do this, ask questions about the company and the people involved. Is the lecture that you are going to actually run by an aboriginal? Is the speaker Aboriginal? Are the profits made by the company helping the people? Are the writers, singers, dancers true aboriginals? Asking the right questions can make sure that your money is going into the people’€™s pockets.

 

Aboriginal Tours

As I mentioned before, if you really want to explore Australia in a way that you’€™ll remember, travel with an aboriginal guide. But, make sure that it is also an aboriginal company and check to see how the profits are used. Support the communities and enjoy your adventure. An Aboriginal tour will open your eyes to a new culture and a new way of experiencing this amazing land.
