A note on spelling

Aboriginal words from a number of Aboriginal languages can have a variety of spellings.  There are many reasons for this, one of which is that there may not yet be an agreed upon spelling system for the language in question or that it has not been recognised. The spellings in this resource kit are generally consistent with those used by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies in Horton, D (ed), Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia (Aboriginal Studies Press, 1994), but it is acknowledged that there are other spellings that some groups may use.
