Hmm, there definitely seems to be a discrepancy between the wish list
pages and the original website and fonts here.

I can't see any reference to the license terms on the website. It simply
says they are "free".

Looking at Oski Blackfoot, which dates from 2003, the metadata says "All
rights reserved" in the copyright field, with no license field.

Looking at African Serif, a newer one from 2007, the license agreement now

This typeface is the property of Chris Harvey and its use by you is
covered under the terms of a license agreement. You have obtained this
typeface software either directly from Chris Harvey or together with
software distributed by one of the products at

This font took a lot of work to make, so please, unless you have entered
into a specific license agreement granting you additional rights, your use
of this software is limited to your workstation for your own publishing
use. You may not copy or distribute this software. Aboriginal community
members and projects relating to Aboriginal languages may distribute the
font freely. Contact Chris Harvey at to get this free
distribution permission.

Or, the shorter version: "You can have this font. Don't show ANYONE!"
