History[edit | edit source]

Circa 40,000 BC, the Aborigines were taught how to sing by a group of Euterpians. (PROSE: Invasion of the Cat-People) They had a dance ceremony called the corroboree. (AUDIO: Psychodrome)

Circa 35,500 BC, one group of Aborigines was met by the Monarch and other Urbankans. The Urbankans abducted an aboriginal leader named Kurkutji and others, mainly for the purpose of performance (dance and didgeridoo). The Urbankans took them back to Urbanka and later converted them to androids. After the Monarch was defeated by the Fifth Doctor, the Aboriginal androids decided to find another planet on which to settle. (TV: Four to Doomsday)

Aborigines also encountered the Nedenah in ancient times. (PROSE: The Devil Goblins from Neptune)

In October 1911, Nathaniel Whitlock had an Aborigine bullroarer in his possession. (AUDIO: Moonflesh)

In the 1970s, a group of Aborigines aided the Third Doctor and Murray Stevens in thwarting Rudolph Steiner's Gemini Plan. (COMIC: Gemini Plan)

In 1994, when Chris Dent and Emma Wilding were building a railroad from Darwin to Alice Springs, they wanted to make sure it didn't damage any sites sacred to the Aborigines. (PROSE: Invasion of the Cat-People)

In 2010, Tegan Jovanka was fighting for Aboriginal rights. (TV: Death of the Doctor)
