AusAnthrop: Anthropology and Aboriginal Australia
"This site is dedicated to research and resources in anthropology, for academics as well as the layman. Special accent is on Aboriginal Australia, and more specifically on the Western Desert cultural bloc. However, other resources are, and future resources will be, of interest to a wider public, whether anthropologists or not."

  • Database on Tribes and Languages
    " an on-line database on Australian Aboriginal tribes, nations, languages, and dialectal groups. It is a reference database that should help to find a tribe or language from the many alternative names and spellings used in the literature. The database contains alternative names, some places of location, bibliogrpahic references, a links to archival files at the South Australian Museum, linguistic classifications such as those by the SIL (Summer Institute of Linguistics) and the AIATSIS (Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies), as well as the name given in EAA (Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia)."
  • Western Desert Project
    " a sub directory of the AusAnthrop web site. It describes the methods, means and results of an ongoing project on land tenure and kinship of the Aborigines of the Western Desert of Australia. The aim is to analyse contemporary social structure among these 40 and more dialectal groups, as well as to investigate historical transformations.
