Australian Bushland Regeneration

Bushland Restoration has the pituri plant which had enormous economic value to the Aborigines. Most of the Aboriginal weaving and written communications systems including nets, dilly Bags and marker sticks, were used to carry the pituri plant or identify the trader in hostile territory. The pituri roads crossed rivers and high mountain ranges where natives would trade the plant over hundreds of miles. The plant was used to trap emus, parrots and kangaroos in water holes. As per Australian Bushland Restoration By the 1950s, pituri use had disappeared, pushed out by Lutheran usurpation of the plant harvest (Hart, interview, November, 1983). This had the effect of bringing tribal members to mission settlements. Commercial tobacco was also introduced into Australia at the time of European contact and became popular among Aborigines, despite the availability of different species of native tobacco that grew Wild and was chewed as a wad.
