Australia Also Apologizes to Its Indigenous People

Looks like Canada is not the only country that made a formal apology to its indigenous people when Prime Minister Harper made that historic apology in the Canadian parliament recently.  Australia did the same thing when its Prime Minister Rudd also apologized to Australian Aborigines, that country's indigenous people for crimes and injustices committed against them throughout Australia's history.  Hopefully, both indigenous peoples of both countries can now move forward along with their respective governments to correct what needs to be corrected.  The indigenous art of both countries is awesome and is a huge part of each nations identities.

Hi, Clint:
Can I convince you to add/include a link to our tribalworks.com site as a resource for authentic African tribal art, including masks, and authentic Australian Aboriginal art?

I know we frequently link to your site and blogs.

Thanks.

PS: Take a look. I think you'll find our the quality of offerings to be the equal of, or better than, what you are currently linking to.
