Australian Folk Tales

Unread post by rowbe » Tue Nov 23, 2021 12:48 pm

For those interested in indigenous stories, I found the attached journal inclusion during a general search of the literature. Being a researcher at a Queensland University I have access to most academic journals, so if you know of anything you would like downloaded let me know and I will see if I can access it.

I hopefully have attached the doc correctly.

Interesting!
The day you stop searching, wondering and asking questions, is the day you are no longer a scientist!!

Thanks, Dan. Hours and hours of reading within the link you provided. It's websites like those that have great snippets of relative info.

What I like to do is compare some of the information provided (in relation to the hairies) in especially in the indigenous folklore, etc. For example, in the link I provided it is stated that "there are always two of these creatures together, and they stand back to back so they can see in every direction" - although we have sightings mainly of one hairy, the thermal image Dean, Gary, Buck and Co depicts two back to back - an obvious strategy when humans (or other dangers) are around. I believe there are elements of evidence in most of the stories.

However, and this is a big but ...maybe the guys could next time - obviously keep silent but "rub their hands on their genitals" (p. 486) and see what happens.
