Location information
Cape Cuvier; Salt Lake; Yanrey River; from Minilya River south to Gascoyne River (WA Handbook). Short coastal strip west of Boolathanna; east of coastal salt lakes to Manberry and Hutton Creek; south to Gascoyne River but only above the floodplain, claimed by the Mandi; inland to Mooka, Mardathuna, Binthalya, and the Kennedy Range (Tindale 1974). The relative locations of Maya and Yinggarda are not consistent across the various sources: Tindale 1974 and Oates 1975 place Maya north of Yinggarda while Walsh 1981 has Maya south of Yinggarda.
