ABORIGINAL AUSTRALIANS

$18.00

A lively, illustrated overview of the culture and history of the Aborigines. The authors explore how the aborigines came to be in Australia, their rituals and Dreamings, and the importance of kin in their social structures. With a chapter on the atrocious treatment at the hands of white settlers and the pervasive racial prejudice that remained enshrined in the Australian constitution until 1967. The final section deals with the massive indigenous cultural renaissance over the past four decades, and discusses how Aboriginal art -- whether Central Desert acrylic art, batik, contemporary urban painting, sculpture or traditional bark painting -- has become a flagship for Australian culture.
