Comment
Comments: 
Hale (1964) uses Awngthim (Y185) as a cover term for Mamngayt Y31, Ntrwa'ngayth Y39 and Thyanngayt Y24. Oates (1975:269) has Mamngayth Y31; in Oates and Oates (1970) however, Y31 is Awngthim. Winduwinda (Windawinda) is the term Tindale (1974) uses as a cover term for twelve or more small groups each with a name terminating in '-ngit'. Sutton (2001:460) says the origin of the term Winduwinda appears fundamentally geographical; centering on the Winda Winda Creek area and covering groups with lands between the Archer and Mission Rivers.
