Summary
These papers include field notebooks, genealogies and miscellaneous typescripts created by Phyllis Kaberry during fieldwork and research as part of her doctoral thesis on Aboriginal women in the Kimberley, 1934-1936. The writings of Kaberry provide rich insights into women’s ritual life, such as the jarada and yirbindji women only ceremonies. Kaberry also documented Kimberley women’s interests in land. Kaberry’s writings detail sustained intrinsic religious ties to land in accordance with a set of beliefs and practices generally and publicly known as ‘The Dreaming’ (or Ngarrangarri, translated by Kaberry as ‘The Time Long Past’) (Toussaint, 1994, 1999, 2002). The genealogies document patrilineal and matrilineal lines of descent, and show women as traditional owners of land and sites on the basis of succession, totemic affiliation, and residence (Kaberry 1939/2004; Toussaint 1994, 1999, 2002)
