Question 1.

The word Aboriginal:

Just two questions remaining…


Question 15
Question 15.

A phrase very common to non-Aboriginal people but less common for Aboriginal people is:

  • Thank you. Because Aboriginal culture is based on obligations between individuals who are related by blood or marriage.

  • Please. Because it is an expectation in Aboriginal social situations that everything is shared between all parties.


Answer14
Answer

The correct answer is A.

Aboriginal people find it odd the non-aboriginal people say thank you all the time. Aboriginal social organisation is based on a set of obligations between family members and such obligations do not require any thanks.


Question 16
Question 16.

Who am I..?

I was born of the Wangal people circa 1764 and died in obscurity at my home in Kissing Point on January 3, 1813.

Arguably one of the most notable Aboriginal people in the early history of Australia, Iwas one of the first Aboriginal people to live with the settlers.

My capture was part of Phillip's plan to learn the language and customs of the local peopleand I eventually travelled with him to England in 1792.

My name now represents a district of Sydney, covering an area of approximately 53 sq km between Carlingford and Chatswood.

My one word name is spelt B………
