Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders (ATSI) represent the oldest continuous culture in the world, representing an evolving cultural spectrum inclusive of tradition and contemporary practices (National aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health plan 2013–2023, 2016). Experts estimate that the number of ATSI people were at more than 770,00 at the time of the invasion in 1788 (Korff, 2016). However, the Population fell to its low of approximately 117,000 people in 1900, a decrease of 84% (Korff, 2016). At present, 3% of Australia’s population identify as Indigenous (Korff, 2016).
2. The main population groups that inhabited Upper and Lower Canada (the two colonies) were the Aboriginals, English, and the French. The Aboriginals were most affected by the growth of the colony. They were the first to inhabit Canada.They had also been military allies of the British, and played an important role in the fur trade. Sadly, many died from diseases brought by the Europeans, or starved after losing lands and access to their traditional food sources.
Entry 1 Who were the Native Americans? Native Americans spoke hundreds of different languages and were a diverse group of people who, for the most part, crossed the Bering Strait between 15,000 and 60,000 years ago. What were the major differences between Native Americans and Europeans? At that time, Europeans had made significantly more advancements in metal tools, gunpowder, and science. Native Americans also had a different political system, religious views, and family structure then the Europeans.
Jews of Australia Australia is a country located between the South Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean. It has a population of over 24 million people. Although Christianity makes up over 60% of Australia, there are only roughly 110,000 Jews in Australia whose History dates back to the 18th Century and has kept growing ever since. Today, the Jewish community in Australia, which only accounts for 0.5% of the population is very active and it is still a big part of Australia. This was the first documented time that a Jew had been in Australia.
In chapter nine (The Columbian Exchange) of his book, The Unending Frontier, John F. Richards argues that the “Columbian discovery and colonial rule in the West Indies brought drastic changes to the people and natural environment of the Greater and Lesser Antilles.” For instance, the biological exchange of diseases such as smallpox and swine flu to which the indigenous peoples had developed no antibodies for “thinned (the native’s) numbers, destroyed their institutions, and broke their resistance to Spanish aggression.” In fact, after only a century after European contact, the indigenous population in the New World shrunk to one tenth its previous size from 53 million to 5 or 6 million people. Spanish rule, therefore, only expedited the eventual

Thousands of lives were lost in the war, which cost the Jackson administration approximately 40 to 60 million dollars -- ten times the amount it had allotted for Indian removal. In the end, most of the Seminoles moved to the new territory. The few who remained had to defend themselves in the Third Seminole War (1855-58), when the U.S. military attempted to drive them out. Finally, the United States paid the remaining Seminoles to move
The Yadkin River is one of the longest rivers in North Carolina. The Yadkin Pee Dee River Basin is North Carolina’s second largest basin. It is very important to a variety of habitats and has been the site of human civilization for at least 12,000 years, earning it the nickname of the ‘‘Tigris and Euphrates of the Carolinas.’’ It was formerly called the Sapona River, after the people that originally inhabited its banks, until the name was changed between 1709 and 1733. The size of the Yadkin–Pee Dee’s North Carolina watershed is 7,213 square miles, and the river is 435 miles long. There are 81 North Carolina municipalities within its river basin, including Wilkesboro, Salisbury, and Lexington.
The township of Woorabinda is in Central Queensland, approximately 180km west of Gladstone. Woorabinda was established in the late 1920’s because Aboriginal peoples were being forcefully removed from their traditional lands at Taroom so early settlers could develop these lands. Woorabinda is situated on the traditional lands of the Wadja Wadja/Wadjigu and Gangula Aboriginal peoples according to the anthropologist Norman Tindale. Tindale documented in 1938 the residents of Woorabinda represented 47 clans, which included people from all over Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory.

 In 2009, about 25.6 per cent of the estimated resident population of Australia comprised those born overseas.  Indigenous peoples of Australia, who had lived in Australia for at least 40,000 years before the arrival of British settlers in 1788, were dispossessed from their land in 1788 by Britain, which claimed Eastern Australia as its own on the basis of the
In Australia the Europeans took over all the land that the Aboriginals had owned for over 40,000 years. They had lost their livelihood, living in dumps and small humpies, no where near a safe or healthy environment. The indigenous people were treated very inhumanely; being told where they can go, where they can’t go and who they can have relationships with. Of course they grew extremely angry and something drastic needed to
