I give these instances just as Harry gave them
at the same time the rest say they acknowledge
nothing but Yarrang & Djeetgang. Do you think
this Y & D are the two divisions having
other divisions as the Macquara + Kilparra
even the animals are divided into totems
and a man though he was a Macquara
could be a [Kawellarru?] or
a Kilparra could a Kangaroo not I should
be inclined to think so. Of course Billy the Bull
really does not know much about these matters.
though he does insist there are only the two
divisions and that all men are Yarrang
and all women Djeetgang.
I had a long talk with Colin Hood as to
idea of a Supreme Being and he tells me
his name of their God is Bingyal and
that they call him father & brother
