Impelled by his fascination, admiration and passion for the symbols, language and culture of the Aboriginal people in Australia, author Kevin Treloar publishes his book titled, Australian Aboriginal Symbols and Meanings. Through his newly published work, Treloar takes readers back in time when the Aboriginal people of Australia roamed free on their land and when the first known people used symbols as a way to communicate their stories.

There are many different sets of Aboriginal symbols and languages, and they vary from tribe to tribe. There were roughly 600 tribes and around 500 people in a tribe-a population of around 300,000 when Captain Cook first arrived in Australia. To date, the Aboriginal population is over 548,000. Treloar feels that it is a bit sad that the population of other races has increased over ten times more than that of the Aborigines despite its being the oldest race known to mankind, about 65,000 years old.

"Now is the time to raise the curtain and dig deep into the Aboriginal culture. Aboriginal symbols from all over Australia, culture and identity are important part of every person's life," declares Treloar. "The Aboriginal culture, over the years has taken a heavy toll, and it is now time to reveal how beautiful the Aboriginal culture is and how we can all have fun with the oldest culture known to mankind."

The Aboriginal language in this book is taken from the Bundjalung and the Dharawal people, and the bulk of the symbols are from Northern Territory. Through this compilation, Treloar hopes that readers see how beautiful and important the Aboriginal history and culture are and how people in Australia, as well as all over the world, can enjoy it.

Simplified yet very informative, Australian Aboriginal Symbols and Meanings is a practical guide book to help Aboriginal children to ask their families about their history, and to find Aboriginal symbols and language from their tribe. This book is intended to show how they can use Aboriginal symbols to make up stories and have fun while honoring and learning from them.
