Laia (QLD)

LocationNorth of Palmer River; east to the Dividing Range; west to the head of the Alice River. The name Kokobatha apparently belongs not to this tribe, but their southern neighbors, the Kokomini. The term Kokowara is also a valid name for a tribe farther east which does not appear to be closely related.
