Jinigudira (WA)
LocationNorth West Cape and its peninsula to a line between the bottom of Exmouth Gulf and Whaleback Hills. At Point Cloates. Coast-frequenting people, they ventured out to sea on rafts of sticks. They also lived among the mangroves that line the eastern shore of the gulf as far north as Glenroy. Most of their food came from fish traps set in tidal estuaries. They spoke a language close to Talandji and were sometimes considered only to be western Talandji, but informants were sure that they had had separate identities for a long time.
