Location: Mouth of Norman River; at Karumba (the proper n.n. Kurumba); from Normanton west to Flinders River; north to the Swinburne River; inland to Milgarra, Maggieville, and Stirling. They are also known as Karundi but my informants strongly preferred Kareldi; they also recognized a term Kotanda as applying to them. This name originally belonged to a people near the Leichhart River. Color plate 1 is relevant.
