History encapsulates knowledge acquired through examination of past happenings, investigation of current events and recognition of future circumstances; and it is a highly acknowledged storytracking field by specific cultures, specifically those with Western orientation. An example of a Western nation is Central Australia, which boasts on its huge lands, wonderful landscapes, rich origins and talented human resources. Another interesting element about the said state is the indigenous people who observe the aboriginal tradition. Along with the biases of the author (since he is a Westerner) and even the readers of this account with respect to their orientations, they must be aware that not all civilizations give the same value to the things (i.e. culture, etc.) that matter to others. Nonetheless, the enhancement of community members' knowledge about their roots is a priceless undertaking.
