No 85 May 2010



This collection of primarily historical articles contains references to deceased Aboriginal people, their words, names and sometimes their photographs. Their words used are already in the public domain and permission has been sought to use their photographs. Many Aboriginal people follow the custom of not using the names of the deceased. Individuals and communities should be warned that they may read or see things in the this book that could cause distress. They should therefore exercise caution when reading this collection.
