520$aBefore European settlement, about 700 Aboriginal nations - each of which had their own Dreaming songs, laws, customs and beliefs and spoke one of 250 or so languages - existed in Australia by the time Europeans began to explore this continent in the 1600s. First Australians is a comprehensive book for primary school audiences about Aboriginal life and customs. Indigenous people had inhabited Australia for at least 40 000 years, if not longer, which makes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures the oldest continuing human cultures on the earth. Find out what kind of houses they built, the food they ate, the clothes they wore as well as how they adapted to life after the British colony arrived in 1788.
