Most of the cards compiled in this shoebox relate to Tindale's concern with using vocabulary to map the distribution of cultural and natural phenomena across Australia. In particular, many of the cards relate to the mapping of tribal distribution patterns. Header cards include: Territory; Barter, Exchange; Birthplace; Boundary; Camping; Camp; Oven, Cooking Place; Coast Dwellers; Dead, Home of; Hordal Terr.; Hunting Terr.; Population; Population Numbers; Population Densities; Shelter, Hut; Strangers; Tracks, Roads, Pathways; Tribe; Tribes Adjoining Contacts. The cards are drawn mostly from published literature sources, with some from Tindale's manuscript materials. Note that the sections relating to population are more working notes and bibliographic entries than vocabulary items.
