2. That sounds the same as in the US where a citizen parent can pass on citizenship

I recall at one time, the indigenous people were not considered citizens. The indigenous artist Albert Namatjira was granted citizenship, so now he could own land, vote, and buy alcohol. Then he got in trouble for sharing alcohol with other indigenous persons, which he did because the culture required sharing with others.
