Read Jim Poulter’s article entitled Aboriginal society (pdf).

This article builds on the previous article about Aboriginal thought systems to show how those concepts and principles apply in practice.

The sections in the article are:

  • The complex world of Aboriginal kinship.
  • Understanding totemic kinship.
  • Kulin Nation Skin Groups.
  • The training of Elders.
  • The Aboriginal sense of humour.
  • Just imagine, a society without war.
  • Understanding a different mindset.
  • The lingering infection of Terra Nullius.
