Throughout the 20th Century Indigenous Australians rights have been detrimentally and unjustly effected by the frequent changing of governmental policies. Before British settlement, the Indigenous population lived as semi-nomads, constantly moving around to ensure the restoring of resources in different areas. In addition to this they would only ever take what they needed to provide for their families, meaning that there was always enough for everybody. Just in the same way the Indigenous strongly believed that they did not necessarily own the land but came from it, from the sky, the land and the animals, this is recorded throughout many of their Dreamtime stories.
