Hey, you might not be from Australia so you might not know, but that’s not an appropriate term for Indigenous Australians. Indigenous Australian or Aboriginal people/s are their preferred terms.

I did not know that. I apologize for any offense.

I don’t know if it’s necessarily offensive, just inaccurate. Indigenous Australians had over 200 distinct languages before colonisation. The term “Aborigines” reduces them to one group.

Aborigines is just a term meaning the people who were there first. I don’t think it’s any specific tribe or group.
