There is a theory that states the earliest man came from Africa many millions of years ago and certain types of man left this place and started to evolve while the people they left behind kept doing the same rituals they did for centuries. In Europe people where starting to build castles, bridges and giant boats that could cross the seas while in Australia the Australian aborigines who had migrated from Asia thousands of years before will still cooking with an open fire and hunting with pack dogs, boomerangs and spears. The different tribes all around Australia had their own different ways in life such as the nomads that lived in the deserts and the nomads that roamed the forests and beaches. Some would hunt with dogs while others ate grubs for a meal however all of them could always find water in the very harsh Australian outback.
The Australian aborigines used make shift shelters such as bark huts or huts made from mud and straw. This was because they only stayed in one place for so long so that they would not take all the resources which would mean there was more when they came back years later. Some aboriginal tribes where known to burn off the land after they had harvested it because the Australian bush trees required fire to burst their seed pods so that new life could grow again. The fire was very beneficial to the forests which rejuvenated like new each time so that when another tribe would come along the area was lush and full of life to hunt and survive from. The aboriginal people are the perfect trackers and know how to use the land to their advantage.
Even though aboriginals are said to have inhabited Australia for nearly one hundred thousand years the oldest bones that have been found where only forty thousand years, quite a few thousand short of the hundred. Like most tribal communities and many of the island communities the aborigines of Australia had their own gods, stories about creation and their own theories on life. They were very respectful of the land which they lived on so that there would be enough for the next generation. Unfortunately when the white man colonized the country the aborigines where made outcasts and treated like slaves and second class citizens. These days the aboriginal people have many rights and government grants such as free land, houses, cars and living utilities.
