AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Wamparla Apira (Possums and Tall Trees) is a traditional story retold in Arabana and English by elder Thanti Syd Strangways. It is not only a fascinating story about a time when the Arabana people used to hunt possums for clothing and food, but it is also an important addition to the Arabana Wangka or language resources for the Arabana people of northern South Australia.'
