Aboriginal Children from Central Australia

Childhood in traditional Aboriginal communities is a time of learning and play, as everywhere else in the world. It is a safe place to grow up, with plenty of fresh air, nature to explore, small rivers and "billabongs" (small lakes) to swim in and bush foods to taste.
