    1. 1962Waipuldanya is one of his tribal names, and Philip Roberts is the name he acquired at mission school.He would have been born in 1923. Raised in Roper River in SE corner of Arnhem Land. Died in Darwin 1989.The book is written in the I form and Douglas Lockwood took down the story over sessions lasting many hours. A great pity that Lockwood did not choose to put Philip Roberts [or Waipuldanya] as co-author; you have to read the introduction to find out whose life story it actually is. And one [...]

    2. This story comes across as a really candid account and it reads very well. I don't necessarily agree with the viewpoint of the person that took the narrative (the dedication on the first page came across to me as condescending to Aboriginal people) or with the narrator himself (he has learned sexist views from his tribe that are grating to this feminist reader, yet he seems aware of them in a helpfully objective way), but then I don't have to agree with anything. It does help, however, that I fe [...]

    3. I found this book in an old box with books that had sat in my parents’ loft for at least ten years. I have always been fascinated by Australia, its animals and its indigenous people and I must have gotten this book for that reason. I never got round to reading it though.This is the story of an aboriginal man called Waipuldanya or Phillip Roberts which is his ‘white-feller’ name, written by Douglas Lockwood, who spent a lot of time with Waipuldanya getting his story right.The memoir was fir [...]

    4. I hqd read this for a social anthropology course in college and enjoyed learning about the author's culture and perspective. I did not like the gender bias of his tribe, but suppose if I belonged to his culture that it would not seem so important.

    5. good book if you are intrested in knowing more about Aboriginal culture. Bit dated, due to being written in 1962, but the author makes some intresting observations about his people.Wonder what he would make of them today?

    6. awesome! This is the story of a traditional Aborigine told by Douglas Lockwood. It was written in 1962 and tells of this guys life and that of his family.

    7. Waipuldanya, of the Alawa tribe began life on the Roper River in south-eastern Arnhem Land. The story describes in great detail the way life was for Waipuldanya as a piccaninny, as I interpret, in the period of 30 years prior to 1953, and into the late 1950's. The context here is significant. In this autobiographical account, W. ( Waipuldanya ) introduces us into an Aboriginal way of life which had largely been untouched for fifteen thousand years, rich in rituals and beliefsd regarded as pagan [...]
