Working Title: Useful Notes On Australia: From YKTTW
Laevatein: Got what I think is a start. Any help with this greatly appreciated.
: Is anyone ever gonna make the Indigenous Australians
page? Don't ask me, I suck at that kinda thing.
Aruelle: Evidently we don't have many Aboriginal contributors, and no-one else feels game enough to give it a crack. Yay for an Aussie education?
Aruelle: Thought I'd check The Other Wiki
to see if it could help with the page, and apparently the preferred term is 'Aboriginal' rather than 'Indigenous'. Think we should change it?
: That's a massively awkward can of worms there. I think it doesn't help that the two words are synonyms. (I'm pretty sure)
Alright, with the right combination of booze and caffiene in me
, I might give the Indigenous Australians
page a crack after a look at Wikipedia. Put it this way: part of our national attitude towards them is The Atoner
, though tragically inept. I think we're about a century behind the Americans for once.
