Comment
Language comment
Umiida (K49) is a non-Pama-Nyungan language of the Worrorran family, specifically western Worrorran, along with Worrorra K17; Unggarrangu K55; Unggumi K14; Yawijibaya K53; Winyjarrumi K56 (McGregor & Rumsey, 2009:8). McGregor (MS 2629) and Coate (PMS 4279) collected vocabulary and sentences. Capell (1984) presents a comparative study of Northern Kimberley languages including Umida. There are other manuscripts with some Umida content available in the AIATSIS library; they have not been scored under the documentation tab as the extent of the Umida data included was not clear.

Location information
Coast and inlets south of Yampi Sound to Cone Bay, islands from Koolan Island north to Macleay Island, west to Bathurst Island, Bayliss Island, and islands in Strickland Bay; inland usually only to the watershed, but they claimed country near Shoal Bay afterward taken by the Worora and the country south to Oobagooma (Tindale 1974) ...east mainland from Secyre Bay to mouth of Robinson River (Coate 1970). Coast and inlets south of Yampi Sound to Cone Bay, islands from Koolan Island north to Macleay Island, west to Bathurst Island, Bayliss Island, and islands in Strickland Bay; inland usually only to the watershed, but they claimed country near Shoal Bay afterward taken by the Worora and the country south to Oobagooma (Tindale 1974). There was only limited direct information on the associations of Umiide in 2007. The associations of Umiide with Koolan Island and Cone Bay were confirmed in 2007. However, Worrorra people claimed to have been the traditional owners of the Shoal Bay area (on the south-west of Collier Bay) in 2007. It does not appear that the ownership of the Oobagooma area had ever been investigated in detail (Harvey ASEDA 802).
