Population, Wirangu, Aranda + Odd

This shoebox contains four sections marked by header cards: 'Foreign words series', 'Tribal names', 'Aranda' and 'Nihon'. There is an additional unmarked section at the front of the shoebox.

  • 'Unmarked section' (1.1 cm)
    This section contains a few cards relating to population density (0.1 cm) and a number of general vocabulary cards (1 cm), drawn from George French Angas's (see AA 8
    7) South Australia Illustrated, 1847. These cards are string bound.

  • 'Foreign words series' (0.1 cm)
    These cards relate to words borrowed from English into Karanguru (SA).

  • 'Tribal names' (1.5 cm)
    Only a few cards in this section relate to tribal names (0.1 cm), and these refer to tribes of New South Wales and Western Australia. The remaining cards (this is apparently Tindale's 'odd' category) contain bibliographic entries, archaeological references, a note on phonetics and vocabulary items.

  • 'Aranda' (5.2 cm)
    This section includes cards (3.3 cm) containing Aranda and Iliaura relationship terms and cards (1.9 cm) containing illustrations of tjuringa markings. These cards relate to Tindale's fieldwork at MacDonald Downs in 1930 and at Mt Liebig in 1932, respectively. Note that in the latter set of cards, both Arunta and Luritja designs are included.

  • 'Nihon' (3.4 cm)
    The cards in this section are filed under English subject headword.

Note that there is no Wirangu vocabulary material in this shoebox.

Tindale Tribes: Aranda; Kukatja (NT); Iliaura; Nauo; Pangkala; Ramindjeri; Tanganekald; Jarildekald; Maraura; Karanguru.
