Aboriginal People

By Maddy Hougaard


Live-around the coast, inland, along rivers

Homes were impermanent made in caves

Slept between fires

Gathered and hunted

Big image


Biggest achievement was art

Painted on cave walls

It told the story of how they lived what they did


Lived in hordes

Would meet as a whole tribe for ceremonies

It was normal for each family to have 2-4 wives

Women took care of the kids and gathered

Moved because the animals moved


Traded with other groups

Traded with plants for healing, tools used for hunting, shells for decoration, food ex. rice, wheat

Traded for building supplies, tools, hunting material


They had a leader

Chosen by the preferred leader

Chosen because of qualities and heritage
