Aboriginal Life Issues

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

Like all Australians, Aboriginal people are confronted by scores of issues daily. However, some issues really grab the attention of people on remote communities - funerals are one thing, also voting on polling day. When an Aboriginal person is elected to Parliament, many from the community and direct family come to town to celebrate in their own unique way. Religion is also a strong influence in many communities.
