Annotation quality: TickTickTickTickTick
Notes on annotation quality: The number of repetitions of 'kurlurndurduk' varies. Thanggirra is an important Nangu clan ancestor (and mi thanggirra 'waterlily seedpod' is a Nangu totem), while ku kurlurndurduk 'peaceful dove' is a Dimirnin clan totem and da kurlurndurkuk 'peaceful dove place' is Kura Kurlurduk, a site in Dimirnin country. This song is something to do with the relationship between Nangu and Dimirnin clans.

Annotator's note:
The number of repetitions of 'kurlurndurduk' varies, and sometimes 'da' is missing from the beginning of line B. Thanggirra is an important Nangu clan ancestor (and mi thanggirra 'waterlily seedpod' is a Nangu totem), while ku kurlurndurduk 'peaceful dove' is a Dimirnin clan totem and da kurlurndurkuk 'peaceful dove place' is Kura Kurlurduk, a site in Dimirnin country.
