|Location||West side of Princess Charlotte Bay north toward Cape Sidmouth; they seldom go farther north than Rocky River. L. West (pers. comm.) did not identify the name but found two hordelike names and a doubtful term Ganganda. I am confident Barunguan is the proper term and was well known when we worked with members of the tribe at Port Stewart and Silver Plains. Plate 4 is relevant.|
