English- - 9b Test No. II 1 The Torres Strait Islanders Read the text. Then do the task. 1 A short history of the Torres Strait Islanders Did you know that Australia has two native peoples: the Aboriginal Australians and the Torres Strait Islanders? The Torres Strait is a part of the sea that lies 5 between the Australian state of Queensland and the island of New Guinea. Its name comes from the Spanish explorer and navigator Luis Vaez de Torres, who sailed through the area in 1606. The islands in this region - called the Torres Strait 10 Islands - mainly belong to Australia today, although some of them are part of Papua New Guinea. For 9,000 years, Torres Strait Islanders have lived in this area. Although they have had contact 15 with Australian Aboriginal people in the south for many years, the Islanders are a separate people with their own culture and identity - and two different languages too. In 1863, the first Europeans came to live on the 20 islands. Then, in the late 19th century, three important events changed the traditional life and culture of the Torres Strait Islanders. One of them was a great 'pearl¹ rush' around 1870, after pearl shells had been discovered in 25 the nearby sea. Many people and businesses were interested in these shells because they could be used in England, America...

and other countries to make buttons for clothes, jewellery and other pretty objects. Quite a few companies 30 came to the islands to farm the shells as a result. Then, in 1871, Christian missionaries² arrived on the islands and started to teach their religious beliefs and practices. The spread of this new religion had a deep effect on the culture of the 35 islands. The day these first Christians arrived is still remembered every year with a big festival. Name: Sophie 29.11.2018 10/10 Another important event happened when the islands became part of Queensland in 1879. This meant more control by people from outside, especially by members of the British Empire. At the same time, the islands were now better protected from the companies who were farming and exporting the pearl shells. These companies were causing big problems because they used much of the natural materials available on the islands (e.g. trees to make fires) and there was not enough left for the islanders themselves. As a result, the number of islanders started to fall and by 1900 the population of the islands was 50 per cent smaller than it had been before the pearl rush. 40 45 50 There followed further important changes in the Torres Strait in the 20th century. During the 1950s, companies started to farm fewer pearl shells, mainly because other materials could now 55 be used to make buttons, and in 1960 the Torres Strait marine industries collapsed. In 1970, there was a terrible environmental disaster, when oil flowed from a big ship into the sea causing a lot of pollution. Even more people lost their jobs and a large number of islanders had to leave and live on the Australian mainland. 60 Today there are around 6,000 people living in the Torres Strait region while around 37,000 Torres Strait Islanders are living on the mainland, most of 85 them in the coastal towns of north Queensland. Torres Strait Islanders see their home as something very important, and those of them living on the mainland often return to the islands to attend family celebrations and other events. There are many famous sports stars from the islands (e.g. rugby, football and basketball players) and there are also a few well-known pop stars. 1 'pearl [p3:1] Perle 2 Christian missionary [kristfon 'mifonri] christliche/r Missionar/in 70 Seite 1 von 5 English Task: -9b-Test No. II Name: Sophie Are the statements true or false?
