'Australia's Indigenous Community - Their Art'
 
 
  
The style of artwork produced by Australia’s indigenous artists is unique and instantly recognised around the world.

Throughout Australia it is found in galleries and a variety of retail outlets especially those related to tourism.

However, this is mainstream Australia.

This investigation is an insight into indigenous art from the perspective of the Australian indigenous community themselves. .

Where their unique form of art fits into their lifestyle and what it means to them.

Does the Australian Indigenous community consider that there artwork has a place in enhancing mainstream Australian communities just like it does their own. Not just to sell in tourist shops, but enhancing anything from buildings to lamppost – enabling mainstream Australia to displaying recognition of the nation’s indigenous people?

The feature available 'Australia's Indigenous Community - Their Art' includes:

A brief history of their indigenous art and how it has developed / changed over time - if at all.
Their interpretation of their art - such as to the use of the environment, colour, style.
Ascertain where art fits into their lifestyle, their culture / tradition – what it means to them.
Reveal how indigenous artist’s creative skills are used to enhance their own communities where they live – buildings etc.
The next generation – is there an interest to learn from their elders and maintain the unique style of Australia’s indigenous art.
From an indigenous perspective - does mainstream Australia appreciate their art?
From their point of view is there a place / should more recognition be given for their artwork / designs in mainstream Australia beyond the retail outlets.

Queensland's Indigenous Community - Their Health And Well Being

by adrian 8. March 2013 08:26
This investigation looks at some of the health problems affecting many of Australia's indigenous people. Focusing on those who residing in some of Queensland's indigenous communities.

Queensland's Indigenous Community - Their Health And Well Being
  
 
 
 Australia - the 'lucky country' - and it certainly has been for many of the new settlers who began arriving back in 1788.

Today they enjoy a standard of living and a level of health envied by many other developed nations around the world.

This though is the mainstream, non-indigenous community.

Australia has another side - that of the indigenous community - who for thousands of years lived a nomadic lifestyle out in the open in the fresh air.

They grew tall, lean and healthy from living an un-sedentary lifestyle

They knew how and where to find water during the dry season.

They ate the seasonal bush food which had been sustaining them for generations.

Above all their minds were clear as they lived like free spirits in harmony with the environment - their land for millennia. 

This lifestyle was all to change. 

The decay set in as their lifestyle was slowly eroded and the mind games began with the arrival of the European settlers in 1788 when they found themselves being controlled both physically and mentally from their diet to the way they could think, and the men's role as providers taken away.

Before very long a variety of diseases introduced by the new colonial arrivals were having a detrimental affect on the indigenous population who had little or no resistance to the diseases with the likes of small pox, gastric complaints, and influenza taking a heavy toll.

Leprosy too had an impact with the first cases being detected in Queensland towards the end of the 19th Century. 

Although Leprosy has now long gone from Queensland indigenous health is still a major concern.

Today the major diseases affecting the indigenous population include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, cancers and mental disorders.

The community's poor health is by and large fuelled by their lifestyle with a range of contributing factors including:

* Smoking, alcohol, drugs; 
* Obesity, lack of exercise, poor nutrition 
* High blood pressure and high cholesterol
* Unsafe sex 
* Child sexual abuse 
* Family, domestic violence
 
This can be compounded in many instances by poverty, insufficient education
and for many remote communities poor access to health services.

This investigation looks at the health of Australia's indigenous communit6y residing in Queensland.
