This item consists of two main sections. The first section (2cm) begins with a header card reading: 'Erawirung, Maraura and Ngintait', and the cards relate to Tindale's South East of South Australia place names project. A card may contain an English gloss, an etymology, and locational and ethnological information. The data is drawn from Tindale manuscript and literature sources.
The second section (10.5 cm) consists of Jarildekald material relating to the South East of South Australia place names project. Note that it has only a small number of general vocabulary cards, and these include clan names. The cards occasionally contain sociological, mythological and tribal distribution data. A note on the first 'Jarildekald' header card reads: 'the xerox copy of cards sent to the [Geographical] Names Committee is incomplete from the addition of places added here in 1987-198 ... from journals both published and my ms ones'. Another header card at the back of the section reads: 'Jarildekald (after 1988 xerox)', and is followed by a small number of cards. These notes relate to Tindale's ongoing work with the Geographical Names Board.
Tindale Tribes: Jarildekald; Erawirung; Maraura; Ngintait.
