    Australian history: Aboriginal agriculture, technology and ingenuity

    ABC Education has released a teaching series on Australia's actual indigenous history, not the sanitised European version we learnt at school

    My favourites in Oz history were Bass and Flinders how they circumnavigated in a dingy.

    what an advanced society it was...

    May be it also explains why Indigenous communities are so good at embracing technology, new practices...and learning in general.

    I wonder if ABC made a series about Ancient Greece...may be can watch one after other and compare...shall we?

    Michael, you are in the Aborigines' country - show respect and good manners.

    Which is why the ABC made a series about it, of course. There are plenty of series about the history of Greece.

    So why aren't you interested in our history?

    I am interested. However, there is something called ''critical thinking & analysis''
    Interested - does not mean that you share certain politically correct views...

    I am NOT in their country. I am happy to show the respect and good manners towards them though...just like they should towards me. But anyway, why would I worry who is Aboriginal and who is not? I am Australian and so are they. What is the difference?

    Quite so. And how long did you spend critically analysing the 14-part series? Personally I feel a sense of pride in Australian achievements

    If Adolf had been successful in taking Russia - with your family still stuck there today as 3 class citizens - would you appreciate arrogant and superiorist Germans claiming Russia as their country?

    I do not understand your point (along with many other points that you are making ). I am not claiming anyone being superior. I think all are equal and should be equal.

    Come on, Michael. You don't really expect us to believe that you don't feel superior but equal to refugees, homeless, indigenous, Sudanese, unemployed, pensioners, any other groups you've disparaged which I might have missed.
