Canberra Google maps and facts

Australia Canberra Culture People basically consists of the Ngunnawal tribes who inhabit the capital city of Canberra for centuries. Canberra, which gradually came to be known as the “Ngunnawal land” bears archeological evidences about this tribal habitation at the Birrigai Rock Shelter in Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and in the rock paintings of Namadgi National Park.

The Australia Canberra Culture People date back to as early as 1820s when the Europeans first started settling on the land. The frequent interactions between the so-called cultured Europeans and the uncivilized, uncultured aboriginals led to regular feasts, corroborees and other cultural exchanges between them. Apart from Canberra, the lives of these tribal people in other parts of Australia were terribly affected by the European settlements. The aboriginal life and land patterns as well as movements were severely disturbed and a large part of them killed in diseases like tuberculosis, smallpox and influenza imported from Europe.

The Australia Canberra Culture People survived on sheep grazing. Canberra, a good sheep grazing station, offered large, open pastures for the purpose. The natives lived in the country for a long time, earning their livelihood by selling various sheep possessions. Gradually, their total counts decreased owing to diseases and hunger, followed by a decline in their language and culture.

Seasonal food items such as bogong moths were what the Australia Canberra Culture People consumed. These insects are found in large numbers in Canberra during the summer time and people moved all around, searching for them.

The Ngunnawal tribes in Canberra had a distinct culture and lifestyle of their own. Their way of life may appear weird to the modern population, but then, their culture was no less prosperous than ours. Had not the Europeans interfered into their lives, they could have existed for some more time, contributing further to the development of aboriginal civilization.
