Aboriginals (New South Wales, Australia)

Urban Indigenous Australia

Australia's Aborigines are bouncing back.

For the first time, the modern indigenous population outnumbers the
estimated population at the time of white settlement.
Unfortunately, the world into which this new Aboriginal generation is
being born is sometimes difficult and often dysfunctional.
The life expectancy for an indigenous child in Australia today is 17
years less than a non-indigenous child born alongside them.
The social landscape that modern Aborigines inhabit is a
blighted one, worn out by multi-generational defeats, failures and
neglect.
