Ngurunta (SA)
LocationArea from west of Barrier and Coko ranges to eastern shore of Lake Frome; south to about midwaters of Eurinilla Creek; north to about Boolka Lake and vicinity of Yandama Creek. In the first edition this tribal area was included with the Maljanjapa with whom the Ngurunta survivors resided in post-European times. My native informant was one who failed in pronouncing initial ng, hence his renderings were ['Runta] and ['Runda].
