Location information
... from the Crocodile Islands in the west to the Wessel Island in the east... Many Yan-nhaŋu people now live at the ex-mission settlements on their homelands at Milingimbi and Galiwin'ku, although some also live at Maningrida (the next community to the west) and surrounding outstations.... There is also a Yan-nhaŋu outstation settlement on the largest of the outer Crocodile Islands of Murruŋga, some 50 kilometres from the northern Australian coast (Bowern & James,2010: 361-362).
