Amangu (WA)
LocationAt Champion Bay; from Chapman River and the southern vicinity of Geraldton south to Hill River; inland to near Mullewa, Morawa, and Carnamah. Southeastern boundary not well defined, somewhere north of Moora. Note that Foley (1865) gives the term 'am-manjo' as meaning man; my sole informant thought ['amangu] was proper. Attempts were made in postcontact times to introduce circumcision but with little success.

This information is reproduced from NB Tindale's Aboriginal Tribes of Australia (1974). Please be aware that much of the data relating to Aboriginal language group distribution and definition has undergone revision since 1974. Please note also that this catalogue represents Tindale's attempt to depict Aboriginal tribal distribution at the time of European contact.
