Useful and informative. The following quote refers to skin group names in relation to surnames -
'These are not surnames but classificatory names. The
first question asked in a new community is: ‘What is your
“skin” name?’ People are referred to or addressed by their
‘skin’ name. They parallel European surnames and are
usually used in conjunction with European first names and
often with European surnames.'
Also the chapter on "Changing from European to Aboriginal names" on page 4 is worth a glance.
