Aboriginal Australians, also referred to as Aborigines, are people whose ancestors were indigenous to the Australian continent—that is, to mainland Australia or to the island of Tasmania—before British colonization of the continent began in 1788. (source : wikipedia)
The name "aborigine" derives from the Latin, meaning "original inhabitants." There are approx. 400,000 aborigines living in Australia. (source : http://www.infoplease.com/spot/aboriginal1.html )
