Why do aboriginal people dress like they do ? – Travel & PlacesReport
These days, Aborigines dress like Europeans. Remember that, for the most part, they are fully functional members of society, adhering to European customs.
When the first Europeans came, the Aborigines liked the colours and feel of their clothes, and were happy to adopt some of the European clothing cutsoms.
Traditional Aborigines who lived in the desert wore as little as possible, because the heat made any more clothing uncomfortable. Indigenous people of the southern states used animal skins to keep warm in winter.
