'In some Aboriginal Communities restrictions apply on the naming or display of photographs of deceased persons. Extreme care has been taken throughout this publication to ensure that such restrictions are not contravened. Since publication however, some people named or depicted in this book may have died. Those taking this book to Aboriginal communities, particularly in the Northern Territory and northwest Australia, should be aware of mortuary restrictions which may apply and exercise caution when displaying the contents of this book. The communities to which this particularly applies are: Bagot, Fitzroy Crossing, Malgawo, Yaruman, Yuendumu and surrounding areas.
In particular people from Arnhem Land or those visiting should be aware that the Malgawo chapter will cause distress to all who know the community, because of recent tragic events there. The book was in press at that time and the community has suggested that the chapter remain as a tribute to the memory of those who passed away'.
