List of Indigenous Australian Group Names

List Of Indigenous Australian Group Names

Below is a list of names and collective designations which have been applied, either currently or in the past, to groups of indigenous Australians.

Typically, indigenous Australian tribes are differentiated by language groups. There are few groups that clearly correspond to such a term. Most indigenous Australians could name a number of groups of which they are members, each group being defined in terms of different criteria and often with much overlap. Many of the names listed below are properly understood as language or dialect names, some are simply the word meaning man or person in the associated language, some are autonyms (i.e. the name as used by the people themselves) and some exonyms (i.e., names used by one group for another, and not by that group itself), while others are terms for people from specific geographical areas.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, names, group, list, indigenous and/or australian:

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    At present our only true names are nicknames.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    With a group of bankers I always had the feeling that success was measured by the extent one gave nothing away.
    Francis Aungier, Pakenham, 7th Earl Longford (b. 1905)

    We saw the machinery where murderers are now executed. Seven have been executed. The plan is better than the old one. It is quietly done. Only a few, at the most about thirty or forty, can witness [an execution]. It excites nobody outside of the list permitted to attend. I think the time for capital punishment has passed. I would abolish it. But while it lasts this is the best mode.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    All climates agree with brave Chanticleer. He is more indigenous even than the natives. His health is ever good, his lungs are sound, his spirits never flag.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The Australian mind, I can state with authority, is easily boggled.
    Charles Osborne (b. 1927)
