Title: Series 2, 3 - Ngilgee. Typescript draft with ms. corrections (published in The Western Mail, Feb. 8, 1908)
Author: Bates, Daisy
Issue Date: 26-Feb-2015
Abstract: Born on the Bussell Rectory’s potato patch, Ngilgi grew up between the 2 worlds of white and black. She had various suitors, 32 dogs and other animals. She worked sporadically for the white settlers but also carried out some of her tribal obligations. Her relationship with a half-caste man prompts DMB to write about the frequency of “wrong” or incestuous marriages as being a prime cause of the Aboriginal race’s dying out.
