The Honey Ants Dream. Portrait of Audrey Martin, a 59-year-old Aborigine woman. Her mother's generation was the first to have contact with civilization and she still possesses the knowledge of the elders. Traditions are rapidly being lost and acculturation has been accelerating since contact with civilization. Learning about life in the desert had been gradual and depended on the youths' age. The secrets and the know-how were handed down as the person matured. The traditions linked to the boomerang were lost within one generation. Learning about and making the boomerang began when the youths were physically and spiritually ready. The elders have not been able to carry on this tradition. TV, video games, internet intensify acculturation. Northern Territory, Australia
