Hey people who aren’t Australian.

Quick note. I’ve noticed this issue a few times lately and I think it’s important (even though I am very much of your wonder-white variety of human) to point this mistake out so people don’t make it in the future.

People don’t call Indigenous Australians “Aborigines” anymore. It is an outmoded term.

It’s not horribly offensive but it’s a bit like calling an African-American a “Negro”.

Aboriginals or Indigenous Australians are the preferred terms.

From an Australian.
