Jangaa (QLD)
LocationHead of Gilbert River, south of Forsayth to Gilberton and Gregory Range; east to near Oak Park, Percyville, and headwaters of Copperfield River; west to Glenora. Distinguish from the Jangga of upper Suttor River. The vocabulary by Dutton closely matches one gathered by me in 1938 but the place names he gives suggests that he was listing a tribal territory originally of the Walangama, but in part that taken over by Jangaa in post-European contact times. The area listed above is the immediately precontact one.

ReferencesDutton, 1904; Tindale, 1940.

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.
