The Aboriginal people of Australia were considered the most ?primitive? of all nonindustrialized peoples, living without organized agriculture, clothing or metal technology. Yet this ?paleolithic? people created skillful tools, consumed grains and legumes, and practiced sophisticated land management techniques. Most importantly, they understood the importance of fat in the diet, always seeking the fattest sources of animals, insects and seafood. This lecture will explore the foodways of the Australian Aboriginal peoples and the land management methods they used to make a difficult environment fertile and fruitful.
