WalkaboutsVerse BS: Bushfires in Australia - Feb 2009-2020 (485* d) RE: BS: Bushfires in Australia - Feb 2009 18 Jan 20


As Jack suggests, on the news here we have heard mainly from European Australian settlements and nowt on Aboriginal settlements.

Frankly, I've lost touch since studying Pre-Colonial Aboriginal Society and Aborigines and the State in the early 90s but, back then, there were places where the local Aborigines were living partly from hunting and gathering - supplementing their diet via a local store.

Traditionally, of course, they were fully nomadic and would have temporarily moved away from approaching bush fires.

What we have just seen on the news here, pleasingly, is "The drumming of an army - the steady soaking rain" (Dorothea Mackellar in My Country).
