    I have watched a animation called The Be.The website is the second one on the bootom.In The Be,I saw a man playing the Claves.It is like the Claves we use in drumming.I think Claves are something Aborigines play as a instrument.It is also aa very good animation.You should watch it.Now I am watching Moon Man.

    Aboriginal people are indigenous (the first) Australians. They tell stories in words and pictures about how the world began. They call this Dreamtime. Their stories are called Dreamings.

    Aboriginal art uses ‘Earth Colours’.

    Why? These are the colours of the desert. Aboriginal artists made their paints from natural materials

    Aboriginal paintings also use lots of dots.

    Why? They used their fingers or sticks. There weren’t any art shops where they could buy brushes !

    Aboriginal art includes lots of symbols for the natural things around them.

    A witchetty grub is a kind of caterpillar that Aboriginal people eat as a special treat.
