Australian Aborigines

Australian Aborigines, earliest native inhabitants of Australia, racially distinguished by dark hair, dark skin, medium stature, broad noses, and narrow heads. Before European encroachment in the 18th and 19th centuries, they lived by well-organized nomadic food-gathering and hunting. Aborigines were enfranchised in 1962. The Australian government has attempted to integrate them into the European population, but they still face discrimination.
