17-27. Correspondence between C Hoff, Superintendent of the Koonibba Lutheran Mission, and Tindale dated 1 July, 1 & 20 August, and 12 November 1926, regarding West Coast groups

28. Copy of a newspaper clipping describing a meeting of the Anthropological Society of South Australia at which Tindale discussed his project 'Native Tribes of South Australia' in which he defined a tribe: 'several local groups, bound together by peculiarities of language, organization, and custom formed a tribe, marked by the possession of a name; its members speaking a common language, which might have several dialects, but differed strikingly from that spoken by adjoining tribes, and they occupied a defined territory'. 'Register', 5 July 1927
