Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. However, it can also be used to honour Aunties and any special female in your life. Celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, it is a great time to let them know how much you love and admire them. Remember, in Australia, it is celebrated in the month of May.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary also does this, and claims the first use of ‘auntie’ was in 1672. However, they don’t reference how they know this or explain more about the story.
Use in reference to Indigenous Australian women
The term aunty or auntie is also used as a term of respect to refer to an older Indigenous Australian woman. They may or may not be related to the speaker. Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians can use ‘aunty’ or ‘auntie’ towards a woman of high esteem and earned respect. However, non-Indigenous Australians should always ask whether this is appropriate. If you’re wondering how to address an aunty or auntie in your local Aboriginal community non-verbally, for example writing a letter, email, or mentioning her online, you should simply ask her how she would like to be referred to.
