Ningūlabŭl (Captain Turnbull)



Ningulabul was a great maker of songs, which, as Barak said, "made people glad when they heard them," but when he sang one of them to Barak, it had the contrary effect, for it made him shed tears. Also identified as Ning-qua-la-val in A W Howitt's notes, he came of a family of gifted singers, for his father and grandfather had been renowned songmakers, and this, as well as his own poetical power, was the cause of his great authority as a Ngurungaeta, not only in his own tribe, but also in those adjoining.
