Infectious european diseases their bodies weren’t used to, forced resettlement and cultural disintegration.-the indigenous australian population, estimated at 350,000 at the time of european settlement, declined steeply for 150 years following settlement, mainly because of infectious disease combined with forced re-settlement and cultural disintegration. the removal of children from their families, which historians such as henry reynold have argued could be considered genocide by some definitions, may have contributed to the decline in the indigenous population. such interpretations of aboriginal history are disputed by some commentators as being exaggerated or fabricated for political or ideological reasons. this debate is known within australia as the history wars.
