Comment
Language comment
According to Breen (1971 MA thesis), the Warluwara G10 people consisted of three groups: Kapula, Parnkara G41, and the Warluwara G10 proper; Kapula is given by Warluwara speakers as a dialect of that language. It appears that Warluwarra, an alternative spelling of Waluwarra, is used by linguists. Documentation on Warluwara G10 may be relevant.
