Down under Aboriginal people at a glance

The indigenous Australians are Aborigines, generally referred to as “Aboriginal people” still exists in the country. We were able to visit a show or presentation giving visitors a look at their culture. We got an opportunity to view artifacts of this group, learn a bit about their practices and interact with the performers. We also had an educational session prepared exclusively for our group privately at our hotel. This presenter was an Aboriginal male but was dressed in modern clothing hence passing one on the street would not be easily recognized. During the open presentation we heard the sounds of the didjerdoo, a wind instrument. We also saw the boomerang in use

When in high school we did Australian geography but never thought I would visit this country. It is so amazing to have this experience. Well Sydney was the next stop
