Sometime in mid 2006, the Indigenous population of Australia reached 500,000, the number often quoted as the population prior to colonisation. The 500,000 milestone is both a symbolic and real victory for Aboriginal survival. Australia now experiences an extraordinary paradox-while Aboriginal peoples make up more than 2.4% of the population and are a vibrant, integral part of Australian culture, there is compelling evidence of massive social, economic, and educational disadvantage experienced by Aboriginal people.
