The indigenous group of Australian Aborigenes have certain physical, genetical 
traits that don't go with the classification of characteristics for either 
negroid or mongoloid, due to some individuals have different hair color and 
texture, deep dark-colored skin and sometimes bright eye color. Is this a 
slight alteration in their DNA or just simply, a mutation caused by genetical 
or ecological  stressors?
