At the time institutions and records referred to in this guide were created, much of the language used was racist and offensive. Offensive terms such as 'half-caste' appear in this guide because they were terms used at the time. This guide uses 'Aboriginal' and 'Indigenous' to reflect usage in different communities. This guide contains photographs of people who have passed away.
