The Muslim cameleers met Aboriginal people as they travelled through the inland and exchanged skills, knowledge and goods.

Look at the slideshow and list some of the things that Aboriginal people  normally traded long distances between their groups around Australia.

Talk about the trade between cameleers and Aboriginal people and how they helped each other?

Have you ever played string games? The string game shown above was made by an Arrente girl called Elsie.

Share some of the string games you know with your friends.
