Aboriginal art symbols and their meanings
Australian Aboriginal Symbols and Meanings : My Aboriginal Generation Is Cool by Kevin TreloarMy Aboriginal Generation Is Cool
There are so many different Aboriginal symbols and languages, they vary from tribe to tribe. There were roughly 600 tribes and around 500 people in a tribe – a population of around 300,000 when Capt. Cook arrived in Australia. To date, the Aboriginal population is over 548,000. It is sad that the population of other races has increased over ten times that of the Aborigines despite its being the oldest race known to mankind, 65,000 years old. I hope that in this book, you see how beautiful and important the Aboriginal history and culture are and how we all can enjoy it.
