Native Cultures of Australia -Mackenzie
From where did they come?
For marriage, husbands were often much older than their wives. A long time ago they barely wore any clothes because it is extremely hot there. They wear red and white face paint to decorate their bodies.
The Aborigines make their homes out of sticks and mud, and wear most of the same clothes as Australians. Their meals are very simple- basically fruit and veggies. Today the play soccer, cricket, and rugby for sports.
Common animals are kangaroos, koalas, dingos, lizards, spiders, wombats,and snakes. Endangered animals are the woylie, mountain pygmy possum, and the Christmas
For food the Aborigines eat yams, bush tomatoes, figs, wild orange truffles, gall nuts of the bloodwood apple, and seeds from grasses.
Australia is in the southern hemisphere so they are having winter in June, July, and August there while we are in summer in the northern hemisphere. The Aboriginal dances mimic the movement of animals and travel to urban areas to perform their dances.
