Janjula (NT)

LocationMacarthur River from near Boroloola to the coast and on the Sir Edward Pellew Islands excluding Vanderlin Island; at Pungalina; southeast along coast to beyond Tully Inlet. In the 1940 map the Njangga were treated as a separate tribe. It is now known from fieldwork at Doomadgee, with Janjula people, that it is merely an eastern name used by the Jokula and others for eastern hordes of the Janjula, extending inland to near Wollogorang.
