Before you give up on a perfectly good design that (as far as we know)
no one has objected to, found offensive, etc. I suggest that you:
>contact Terri Janke an indigenous Lawyer who specialises in this area.
send her a picture of the design, tell her that you meant no disrespect
and that you actually were trying to promote native Australian art forms
as well as free software that benefits everyone, that you are willing to
put a nice letter in with each shirt (or even print on the back
something about Native Australian dot art), and that you are a
non-profit and ask her advice.
She may say:
"I don't think there is a problem"
