An ethnic people that were the original inhabitants of Australia and New Zealand, but have long since lost the land to European settlers (particularly the Anglo-Saxons). The Aboriginals were also the original inhabitants of North America, and their mixture with later-arriving Asians created what we refer to as Native Americans. Today, the Aboriginals are the dominant ethnic group of India and Mexico, and may be found throughout the entire Indian subcontinent and Latin America.
The popular name "Kyle" (or Kylie for girls) is of Aboriginal decent.
Most people dont realize that Aboriginals may be found in other locations besides Australia.
