Sample text

In the rainy season, berries, fruits, wild-honey, frogs dug out of pits, and white-ant larvæ (which are only eaten by the women and very old men,) are available in addition to game and fish. In winter, lily-roots and seeds, yams, tubers, nuts, grass seeds, pandanus and baobab nuts are collected by the women, and later in September grubs are found in the river-gums; lily-roots are dug from the caked mud of the river beds or billabongs, that have dried up. Fish, game, reptiles, porcupine, and birds are secured by the men most of the year round, though at some periods they are better in quality than at others.

The men go out to hunt, the women to forage. The camp, fourteen miles to the north-east of Bedford station, was typical. It was a clearing between hills of redsandstone covered with spinifex and small scrub; at one end was a waterhole, which at that time of the year, September to October 1935, was only a foot deep; at the other end, three hundred yards away, was the corroboree ground. There were over seventy Aborigines here on their summer “walkabout”, mostly Lunga, with a sprinkling of Kunian and Wula from the ranges to the west.
