Ninanu (WA)

LocationOn Lyons and North Lyons rivers west to near Mount Phillips and to Peedawarra Bluff; east to eastern end of Teano Range; south to about Mount Augustus. Von Brandenstein (1965 MS) has heard of another tribal name on the Lyons River, Ngaunmardi, centered on Dooley Downs; these are probably one people since my informants stressed the Ninanu were at Dooley. They practice both circumcision and subincision.
