Kamilaroi and Kurnai


Show Summary

It is said to have often occurred that, where a man’s wife had an unmarried sister, the father would, when the first elopement had been condoned, give the second sister to his daughter’s husband—the alleged reason being that the parents would then have a double supply of food.1
