Tjingili (NT)
LocationFrom Mount Grayling (Renner Springs) in the south to Newcastle Waters in the north; on the Ashburton Range; in the east to Cattle Creek and Ucharonidge; west only about 25 miles (40 km.) from Lake Woods. Note that in Ravenscroft's account (1892:121) Charlotte Waters is given in error for Newcastle Waters as the center of distribution. This error was noted first by Sir Edward Stirling in a handwritten amendment to his personal copy of Ravenscroft's paper. In native tradition they moved eastward out of the Great Western Desert.
