Nomadic Ethics

I’m interested to hear what you all think about some ethical “issues” I’ve been contemplating lately.

Do you think that nomadic peoples (my e.g. will be Australia’s Aboriginals) should hunt animals for food? How do you think ethics applies here? Should Aboriginals partake in a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle? If so, does the ecological and geographical environment Aboriginals live in enable them to freely cultivate the land (mainly desert) to grow vegetables and fruit? Do they need to cultivate the land? Is it enough that the only animals Aboriginals can’t/wont kill are those animals [displayed] on their personal totem?

Note. This is not a racial or political attack on the Aboriginal peoples. This post is purely intended to focus on the relativism of practical ethics, if there is relative practical ethics.
