Headman was called “Turki” Metoko was a
Jenny Cooper

I heard much from the four survivors of one 'Metoko’
who combined the office of Headman and medicine man.
In this aspect the Theddora [Headman - crossed out]
Turki perhaps most resembled the Gommera
of the Coast Murring. (see p -)

Some of the old men [in the - crossed out] were known to me by repute
not only from the survivor of the tribe but also from the Kurnai
Wolgal and Ngarigo I was acquainted with. They were
Metoko who was a renowned medicine man who it was said
could ascend to the sky by means of a thread like a spider web
which he blew out of this mouth.

Ingebaira was a fighting man belonging to Eastern
branch of the tribe adjoining the Ngarigo

I have very little information as to the Headmen
of either the Wolgal or the Ngarigo.
