Notes. 1. It is evident that the Port
Lincoln
Tribes are Tamilian in their
system. They are very low in the
scale of humanity. Lower than the
River Murray Tribes.
2. I obtained all these particulars
by direct enquiry from natives
of the Meru Maraura and Port
Lincoln
Tribes. I am sorry that
I could not get more complete
lists. Only those who have tried
know how difficult it is to
pursue such enquiries among
savages. I think however that
these lists prove that the
Tamilian system of kinship
extensively prevails amongst
the Aborigines. I think it is
also proved that there has
been an intruding people with
a different system.
