Malintji (QLD)
LocationNoncircumcising tribe living east of the Maiawali along Vergemont Creek, south to about Jundah. Very little is known about them. Mathews (1905) makes bare mention of them as adjoining his 'Wonkamurra nation' high up on Cooper Creek. In the explanation of the map in his earlier 1900 paper he lists the tribe under his 'Yowerawarrika Nation' of which he places the northern boundary just above latitude 26. He evidently was uncertain about their position and the uncertainty still remains. The boundaries given are principally by exclusion from surrounding tribes.
