When the Ngarage see an animal in someone's hands, they say, "Give the animal to me."
Comment:
The Ngarage are young men in a Dry Season society that serves the "lord" of the bush. They take a portion of everything killed for the lord. Some of the meat would presumably go to them also. -- The use of the conjunction na 'and' is not felicitous. Nothing justifies its use here. Notice the use of 1SG pronoun after the Ngarage are identified in the plural. This is not evidence of a grammatical function.
