General Notes: Dark Emu puts forward an argument for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer tag for precolonialAboriginal Australians. The evidence insists that Aboriginal people right across thecontinent were using domesticated plants, sowing, harvesting, irrigating and storing, behavioursinconsistent with the hunter-gatherer tag.
Dark Emu puts forward an argument for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer tag for precolonial Aboriginal Australians. The evidence insists that Aboriginal people right across the continent were using domesticated plants, sowing, harvesting, irrigating and storing-behaviours inconsistent with the hunter-gatherer tag. Gerritsen and Gammage in their latest books support this premise but Pascoe takes this further and challenges the hunter-gatherer tag as a convenient lie. Almost all the evidence comes from the records and diaries of the Australian explorers, impeccable sources.
