Disambiguation link notification for October 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Brighton, South Australia, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page St Jude's Church (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hello Paul. I am new to Wikipedia. As a hobby I read extensively on Indigenous cultures around the world - a fascinating subject. I have a large library as a result. All of the Wiki articles on Australian Aboriginal culture have a lot of missing details in terms of description of Aboriginal life pre-colonisation, a subject which is of great interest to many people. Books on this from the 1800s to 1900s are abundant and easy to access (Tom Petrie, William Buckley, Douglas Lockwood etc.), and some tribes in Australia still practice culture (Martu people of WA, Yolngu of NT etc.). PDFs of Yolngu law as it has been practiced for 1000s of years has been written down by the elders for the broader public to understand, and is easy to access with a google search. I have asked this question on a few talk pages now, but not had a reply: Is there any particular reason for editors leaving out large amounts of easy to find facts and information on this subject?

Question / Request[edit]

Hi, I recognised your name on Wikipedia:WikiProject Indigenous peoples of Australia#Members, so I thought you would know the best place to "advertise" a posting I made at Template talk:Aboriginal South Australians#Notable people?. (I guess I'm interested in whether any of these Kaurna people are notable (though as they've had a park named after them, I guess that means they are), and whether anyone is sufficiently knowledgeable and interested to write pages about them.)
