Maljangapa (NSW)
LocationMilparinka, N.S.W., and head of Yancannie Creek; east to beyond Mount Arrowsmith, south to about Mootwingee and Sturt Meadow. (In the 1940 edition the territory listed included in error that of the Ngurunta, which see). In early accounts the tribal area is sometimes given as extending too far to the east presumably because of post-European migration. They practiced only circumcision as a rite of male initiation.
