AHR Volume 001 - Iconography of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples

The Australian Heraldry Society acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a long and continuing tradition of using totems and symbols unique to their cultures. To ensure that AHR is inclusive of all Australian symbolism, the intention is to eventually include them as Volume 1 - an acknowledgement that its use pre-dated European settlement and the science of Heraldry.

At present, the rights to various totems and symbols is unclear and the Society is reluctant to populate this register without input from these communities. The Society continues to seek this input by engaging with representative bodies and hopes to update this volume in the near future.
