Summary
Examines the belief system of people living at Yandeearra through a detailed structural analysis of ritual performances, mythic narratives, stories and a song sequence; demonstrates the way in which religious knowledge affects the ordering, sustenance and perpetuation of social life through the expression and resolution of conflict and the creation of intraand intercommunity alliances; discusses historical background and social setting; classes of religious knowledge and their property relations; detailed accounts and interpretation of a sequence of rituals (particularly meaning of ritual objects, body designs, food, male-female relations, songs, dances, magical procedures); extensive analysis of narrative sequences (including genres, origins, contexts, style, performance); concepts of land and land ownership including spiritual responsibility, rights in country owned but not occupied and local estate ownership; Appendices contain further narrative texts, translations and commentary
