Bobby Coleman (Kūlŭtba)
I was born at Brt-gŭtta, just over there at the
Hill Top. My father’s name was Kūlŭtba
from Bellum Bellum, that is McNaughtens
Straits. “Old Morgan” was my Babŭk. I think
Bellum is the name of a small fish. My
mother was a Brabra from near
Mūnji not far from Butlers. I am a
Brataua – belonging to the Yonŭng – I
am almost half Briaka. My father
belonged [the – crossed out] to the same mob as Jemmy
Fidgett – that is Yonŭng. Tommy Hoddinot
also belonged to Yonŭng. The Yonŭng are real
Brataua. My country goes down the Latrobe
River from the bridge. Up the river belonged
to the Briaka. I have heard of Nollum
Nollum – I think it is up near the Tanjil.
The Brataua had three mobs, Yonŭng at
Warrigal creek, Delin at Buckleys, and
Kŭtwŭt which is the first river at the [end – crossed out]
other side the open country going to the diggings
at Sticky aid creek. The river is in a deep
gully and [has – crossed out] there is an island before when it
comes out. The Tarra belonged to Yonŭng.
A place called Yonŭng [?Gatti?] belonged to
Delin. It is what is now called Tucker
Yonung get wives from Delin, Bunjil Kraura
Ramayŭk, [?Kŭtbrŭitaura?]. Delin got wives
from Bunjil Kraura, Baul Baul.
Kūbwŭt from Yonung gatty, Bunjil
Nellung. I know this because I remember
women who came from these places.
