Ethnological Studies Among the North-West-Central Queensland Aborigines


Show Summary

No females, and no males who have not already been themselves introcised [subineised] are on any account allowed to witness the ordeal, the sight of which would probably confirm any determination on their part to exile themselves with a view to escaping it: thus, in the Cloncurry District, I came here and there across an appreciable number of Pitta-Pitta and other Boulia Districts males, who admittedly had left their own tribe on this account.3
