Indigenous Peoples of Australia

Last updated:  22 August 2001

Why this page from a German citizen living in Australia? If I'd only knew. This is all the result of a magic development of the past years when I got involved in Indigenous Peoples in Australia and North America. Eventually, I felt I should set up a web-page about the beautiful people I worked with, and here's one on the Indigenous Peoples of Australia. Others deal with the Mi'kmaq and with Salish Kootenai and Pend d'Oreille.

Guess, this is my humble tribute to these Peoples who I owe the deepest respect and admiration. Thanks for the lessons you're teaching me - ldb.

This is a web-site on the Indigenous People of Australia, the traditional owners of the land, which we call "Australia". I would like to express my respect and gratitude to the Peoples for accepting me on their land.

I have tried to collect links which provide essential information on a variety of topics I am interested in. This site is by no means comprehensive in terms of covering each and every aspect of Indigenous People of Australia.
