Offers a general survey of Indigenous Australian societies and cultures from the earliest times until the mid-20th century. The unit explores some debates about aspects of Aboriginal social life before the British colonisation-for example, social and political structures, economies, religious beliefs and land management. The history of contact between Aborigines and outsiders is examined and includes the following topics-responses to changing circumstances, Aboriginal resistance, and government attempts at conciliation, protection, segregation and assimilation. Attention is also given to the competing ways in which Australian historians have represented Aboriginal history.
