Humpy Term Analysis

A humpy is Australian slang for a crude shack or hut used as a residence, usually by Aboriginal people. They sometimes rely on a tree trunk for support, similar to a lean-to, and are usually made of cheap or flimsy material. Robyn Davidson encounters many Aboriginal people living in humpies during her time in Alice Springs and while visiting stations during her trek.
