AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Booyooburra : A Story of the Wakka Murri is a children's dreaming story about a fishing expedition undertaken by the Wakka Murri people. They hear the call of a dark man singing out from the top of a large rock near the place where they usually obtain their fresh water. The stranger's presence and his funny singing angers the Wakka Murri. This story is written in Aboriginal English.
