Aboriginality of Australia

<

The aboriginal people have been in Australia for the past 45,000 years plus. Here is my tribute to a very hardy race of folk who in 1967 (and long overdue) were recognised by the Australian Government. Music and art play an important part of aboriginal culture. The Labor Rudd Government apologised to the Stolen Generation in 2007, one of the first things they did after gaining government. The images here are of aborigines living in Sydney. Uanuthorised use of these images will be vigorously pursued by legal means.
All images are available in both colour or monochrome.

Warning to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island viewers: The following contains images of people who are deceased. No disrespect intended nor meant.

PLEASE NOTE THAT NONE OF THESE IMAGES ARE 'FREE'
