LocationFrom Cape Dromedary (Kajan) south to beyond Bega; inland to the sharp scarp of the Dividing Range east of Nimmitabel. This tribe was omitted in error from Tindale (1940). Howitt (1904) used the term Yuin to embrace this tribe and the Thaua; the word ['juin] means man; farther north, as among the Tharawal, it means 'yes.'
