Nanggikorongo (NT)
LocationEast of Port Keats; inland on the river called Moyl (Moyle); Falkenberg did not recognize it in 1962. This is apparently the tribe labeled as Nordaniman in the Mackay MS. According to Stanner (1970) MS, this is not a tribal term but a 'big name' for a place on the seacoast in Murinbata country. He places the name Nangiomeri, also given as Nangi-wumiri, as alternative. Further work is necessary on this area to clear up the matter and the relationship of these people to those shown farther east under the name Nanggumiri.
