What is the aboriginal tribes for broom?
The size of the Aboriginal tribes varied depending on which part of Australia they were in and what resources were available there. Areas where food was plentiful, such as near the coast, often had tribes that numbered in the hundreds, while further inland tribes were typically small, often less than 100 people.
At the time of the First Fleet in Australia, there were estimated to be between 600 and 700 aboriginal tribes in Australia. Not all of these tribes are represented in modern times. More details, including a map of the lands occupied by the original tribes in Australia, can be found at the related link below.
The earliest European settlers assumed that each tribe must have a king or chief, just as European nations and African tribes did. If in doubt, they even designated one who looked like a leader as 'king'. However, Australian aboriginal tribes were really ruled by their elders, who made collective decisions.
