They also volunteered to enumerate A10 once the funeral there was finished. The CFO arranged to come back in a few days to conduct the training, and we set off further down the track in an optimistic frame of mind. 3 At its height, this funeral of a senior man, which was politically contentious, attracted more than 400 people from a region the size of Wales. In turn, however, members of the host community were themselves absent—at yet another funeral in the wider region at E2. 36 Agency, contingency and census process We drove on to the largest homeland in the area, C3, where the usual resident population is in the region of 160.

The CI tried valiantly to continue her census work, but after a couple of days it all became too much. The family was relying on her, as a literate person, to complete the bureaucratic arrangements and she still had her part-time job on top of that. And, despite the family’s desire for a quick and uncomplicated funeral, ‘Yolngu politics’ about where the funeral should take place began to manifest themselves. On one occasion, when this CI was helping someone to fill in the form for their household, she was reproached for doing this work when she should be attending to funeral matters.

We drove into A7 (a three-dwelling homeland) towards evening. It was empty—everyone was at the funeral at A. The next day we called in at A8, which has a usual resident population of about 80. 3 It was decided to return to these communities after the funerals were over and people had returned. The CFO had been warned before leaving A—by staff of local organisations and by the CCs he had recruited—that these homelands would be empty, or nearly so. Because people know how everyone is related to everyone else, they can predict with a fair degree of certainty which people will be attending which funerals.
