Other documents

A version of the Emu and Brolga story was recorded from Harry Doolan and others by Norman Tindale in June 1938. Tindale and Austin wrote up that recorded version in 1985. Here is a pdf of their article, and [a work in progress] a version of the story in Word, with extra notes.

The longest GY text is the story of Dhinawan and Gumbulgaban [Emu and Bustard] recorded by Katie Langloh-Parker, in Australian Legendary Tales, which is available on the OldSources page. She has an English version as the first story, and a Yuwaalayaay version as an appendix. In the Old Sources page you can also find a document which interprets the Parker YY version in the current writing system and using what we know of YY grammar and words from other sources. The book is also available at https://www.sacred-texts.com/aus/alt/index.htm.
