Australian Aboriginal Food: Sustainability
Water was carried in kangaroo skin water bags and water sources, particularly in inland, deserts were sacred and looked after.
Aboriginal People also knew how to make other resources to last, they didn’t hunt too young animals and they avoided hunting a species during their breeding seasons.
They domesticated the wild dingo to help them hunt and find animals.
They lighted fires where certain species needed regular burning.
And they created habitats for insect populations.
Plant and animal parts that weren’t eaten were used to make weapons, household items like skin bags and buckets, and an array of bush medicine.
