64Bobby Coleman (Kūlŭtba)I was born at Brt-gŭtta, just over there at theHill Top. My father’s name was Kūlŭtbafrom Bellum Bellum, that is McNaughtensStraits. “Old Morgan” was my Babŭk. I thinkBellum is the name of a small fish. Mymother was a Brabra from nearMūnji not far from Butlers. I am aBrataua – belonging to the Yonŭng – Iam almost half Briaka. My fatherbelonged [the – crossed out] to the same mob as JemmyFidgett – that is Yonŭng. Tommy Hoddinotalso belonged to Yonŭng. The Yonŭng are realBrataua. My country goes down the LatrobeRiver from the bridge. Up the river belonged to the Briaka. I have heard of NollumNollum – I think it is up near the Tanjil.The Brataua had three mobs, Yonŭng atWarrigal creek, Delin at Buckleys, and Kŭtwŭt which is the first river at the [end – crossed out]other side the open country going to the diggingsat Sticky aid creek. The river is in a deepgully and [has – crossed out] there is an island before when itcomes out. The Tarra belonged to Yonŭng.A place called Yonŭng [?Gatti?] belonged to Delin. It is what is now called Tuckerpoint.Yonung get wives from Delin, Bunjil KrauraRamayŭk, [?Kŭtbrŭitaura?]. Delin got wivesfrom Bunjil Kraura, Baul Baul.Kūbwŭt from Yonung gatty, Bunjil Nellung. I know this because I remember women who came from these places.
