This is my story.  My name is Waipuldanya, or Wadjiri-Wadjiri.  (If they twist your tongue too much you may call me Phillip Roberts.  This is my white-feller name.)  I'm a full-blood aboriginal of the Alawa tribe at Roper River in the Northern Territory.  My body has been through fires of tribal initiation.  I have been subjected to many taboos.  As a child I was "sung" to death by a malevolent Doctor Blackfellow, a Medicine Man who wished to destroy me in order to punish my clan.  I was saved by another.

Douglas Lockwood wrote this book about my life.  He is my countryman.  Enjoy it ... and understand us better ...
