Description

The Euahlayi Tribe

By K. Langloh Parker

"This is an effort by K. Langloh Parker to describe in formal terms her understanding of Euahlayi society. The resulting ethnography is factual and well written. Parker was obviously also familiar with the anthropological literature. She was hardly the detached observer that modern ethnography demands, however, at that time this methodology had not been invented yet. This is not necessarily a bad thing. As Andrew Lang points out in the introduction, she lived in close contact with aborigines for many years, and as a female she had access to the women of the tribe, a viewpoint for which we have no other source from that time period. "

About the Author:

"K. Langloh Parker (the K. stands for 'Katie') [1856-1940] lived in the Australian outback most of her life, close to the Eulayhi people. The texts, with their sentient animals and mythic transformations, have a sonambulistic and chaotic narrative that mark them as authentic dreamtime lore. The mere fact that she cared to write down these stories places her far ahead of her contemporaries, who barely regarded native Australians as human."
