        Aborigines' Connections to the First Australians | First Peoples: Australia

        Australian Aborigines, the oldest continual culture anywhere in the world, claim that one of their "songlines"—ancient star charts they have used for tens of thousands of years to navigate their land and find each other—refers back to the original crossing from Asia to Australia. In this clip, Gali Yalkarriwuy, an elder of the Yolngu people, performs the "morning star dance," which appears to be connected with the culture of early humans in Australia.
