Documentary "The Men of the Fifth World" | bit.ly/PlMen5World

The Men of the Fifth World is a documentary that shows us the history, culture and traditions of the Australian aborigines, primitive tribes who inhabit these lands.

The old Garimala Yakar, tells firsthand how their world is accompanied by the sound of the didgeridoo, the beat of their tradition, which keeps them together and attached to the land:

"Hunting and war have always been men's work, and they have always made their own weapons. Without a doubt, the boomerang is the best known of these. hey are pieces of wood carved with a slight curve, which makes them more accurate when they are thrown. The heavier they are, the more effective they will be in bringing down prey. Despite what most people think, a real boomerang does not come back. The tourist and souvenir industry has invented devices decorated with designs from our culture, which they sell as if they were authentic boomerangs. but for us they have no value, they are no good to hunt with or anything.

But the boomerang is not our only weapon. In fact, the spear is our best weapon. We used them in our fight against the white men who invaded our country and drove us off the land that belonged to us.
Our spears claim other victims. When the tide goes out, we fish for the dangerous sting rays. These are manta rays that hide in the sand, ready to plunge their enormous stings into anyone who dares disturb them."
