Indigenous Culture Web Site Review Template
Question Response
Web site 1 URL: www.cultureandrecreation.gov.au/articles/indigenous/
Name of Indigenous
culture/religion presented
in Web site
Australian aboriginal cultures; Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander cultures
Consider the examples of
roles and observances
held sacred by these
people. Is this practice
being kept alive?
They still endeavor to live with the land; they seem to
live off it. They also still practice preservation - never
to destroy. As such, these cultures still treasure
everything and eliminate nothing because eliminating
something essentially entails eliminating their “god”.
Has the culture/religion
evolved over time?
Technology has only moderately altered their way of
life. This change is primarily seen through the
actions of the tourism culture which basically invades
their standard of living (Australian Government
Culture Portal, 2008). Most recently, they have made
a presence in the council of the United Nations; this
certainly demonstrates a modification within their
everyday lifestyles and viewpoints.
If the culture/religion still
lives, how has Western
culture changed it?
There has been an increasing interest in Aboriginal
culture, particularly from Australian retirees and
overseas visitors. The Australian aboriginal cultures
permit this invasion only to assist in supporting or
facilitating with their survival in the fiscally-based
world which surrounds them.
Who authored this site?
Do you think the content
of the site is authentic?
This site was authored by the Australian Indigenous
Cultural Heritage. The content of the site looks
authentic.
Name one interesting fact
you learned from this
Web site.
Australian aboriginal cultures are quite possibly the
oldest living cultural history in the world; they can be
traced back almost 50,000 to 65,000 years.
