First People Then And Now:

Introducing Indigenous Australians

 

 

 

First People Then And Now: Introducing Indigenous Australians is a book by Australian author, Marji Hill.

In a short, concise, educational format First People Then And Now tells the epic story of Indigenous Australians from 65,000 years ago to the present in one of the world’s first centres of civilisation.

The book provides answers to questions asked by visitors to Australia from around the globe.

It explains concepts like the Dreamtime, totems, Native title, clan, “tribe,” shows how the cultures of the first people survived in the face of almost total dispossession and destruction, promotes understanding between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Australians, and brings into the spotlight the culture and humanity of the Indigenous Australians coupled with the insidious colonisation by the British.
