Comment
Language comment
According to Breen (1971), the only linguistic information seems to be a few words in Howitt for 'Kurnandaburi'. Tindale (1974) says 'the Kurnandaburi of Howitt probably is this tribe, but may be the Kungadutji L16'. The name for this language was previously Garendala L29 in this database and the Thesaurus.
