Jadira (WA)

LocationMiddle waters of Cane and Robe rivers from south of Mount Minnie north to the Fortescue River; they did not go east of the western scarp of the higher plateau of the Hamersley Ranges. In post-European times some moved east to Ashburton Downs Station and others to the mouth of the Fortescue River and were absorbed into the Mardudunera. They once used to have access to the sea between the Cane and Robe rivers through Noala territory. They did not circumcise.
