LocationSouth of Glenbower (now called Lancevale); at Maryvale; south to Blackall; boundaries fixed principally by exclusion from territories of neighboring tribes. Their territory is well wooded with broad sandy plains and meandering streams flowing from the higher country to the northeast. They also called themselves ['Kari:mari] which means 'Salt men' (['mari] = man). Their vocabulary is rather distinctive.
