Background:

Colonialism, both physically expansionist and economic, has caused cultural changes in many countries throughout the world in the last 500 years. One example is in Australia where the dominant ethnicity/race post-colonisation has been Anglo-European. Australia’s first people, our indigenous Australians have become a minority ethnicity/race. This has caused many cultural changes within Australia.

Across the world, there have been changes in power, authority, progress and benefits between the dominant ethnicity/race and the minority ethnicity/race within a country though many cultural traditions and lifestyles continue for the dominant and minority cultures.
