    A very reasonable request.

    Yup, very reasonable. Th 'n' word isn't there anymore, so why the above?


    You have to love sabang teaming up with chico. One trying to be edgy, as usual, the other just being thick.

    During my 'time' there it was advisable to use the term Koori, which is also the term they used.



    Which, upon a bit of looking is for those from NSW and Victories, with Murri used in Queensland.

    There is no such thing as an indigenous language- there are many, and not mutually intelligible. If we, for convenience, adopted the lingo of an east coast tribe clustered around the Sydney area you can be sure the other aboriginal 'nations' would be up in arms about it. Over to you, but I'll stick with abo. After all, that is what they usually term themselves- either that or 'our mob'.

    For a particular group from around Melbourne area.

    I believe Aboriginal is acceptable and First Nations people preferred.

    ETA: just checked, I was wrong.

    or better yet just ask what they want to be called as different people prefer different terms

    Once again Ant demonstrates his idiocy. I have a lazy keyboard and occasionally miss a letter.

    Furthermore, it is Panama Hat, KW, AO and Ant who all spell words wrongly....words which I knew how to spell in grade 5. But it's not just misspelling....they are words which have completely different meanings.

    It may seem petty for me to point it out....one does wonder if they ever read books. And wonder at their general level of education...
