Biraban shares his own beliefs and laws

Biraban also shares with the Christian missionary his own belief systems and laws: Threlkeld reports to superiors: “The Aborigine, who assists me in obtaining their language, informs me, that there is a being, in the Sugar-loaf Mountains, resembling a man but taller in stature; with arms, legs, face, and hair, very long on the hair, but the feet are placed contrary to the face being behind; and the body hairy, like an animal…He is fierce, devouring men, and often pursuing the Aborigines in the mountains”. (LMS Report 1852 in Blair, 2003, p52).
