Dauer (Total Stunden) 6
In 2021, this course looked at Australia in general and only one session was spent discussing Aboriginal cutlure. This year, the course will focus purely on Aboriginal traditions and culture and use it to help explain what Aborignal people are like today. We will look at the following areas:
Session 1: The archaeological and historical record gives us a glimpse into what Australia was like before colonisation occurred in the 18th century. We will also explore traditional food gathering techniques, and look briefly at the pre-colonial era diet.
Session 2: What traditional beliefs and rituals still inform the modern Aboriginal viewpoint?
Session 3: Why do Aboriginal people feel so misunderstood, and what message are they trying to communicate to other Australians?
Participants should bring a laptop for small reading and research exercises.
