secret/sacred

Not apparent to me that the given citations are anything other than "secret and/or sacred", which would be sum of parts and not plausibly idiomatic. But perhaps this does have a specific use in the Australian context? -- Visviva 18:23, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Hyphenated form seems somewhat common: [1] This caught my eye in particular (from the Charlesworth book): "The term 'secret-sacred' is well known in the literature on Aboriginal Australia and is used to designate either men's or women's religious knowledge." Equinox 19:15, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Strong delete (or better, rename) only one citation in the article, which doesn't seem to be anything put an abbreviated form of secret or sacred. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:18, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Renamed per Equinox's very good analysis. Might merit an RFV though, Mglovesfun (talk) 11:07, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
