Note In the above the English meanings of the
Subdivisions are not given as the above is only
proforma. But it is always well to give them
as completing the information; as an example
one or two are given above.
The last two columns show the local marriage
rules. Thus a man of Dūra may only obtain a
wife from Wūrnŭngatti, Mallagoota or
Binnajerra - and the daughters of the
Dūra men go to divisions c a t as wives.
The above regulations are however incompletely
ascertained as some of the local divisions of the
tribe have died out. All the divisions of the Meening I suppose
still exist.
