Comment
Comments: 
Sutton (2001:45) says Arraythinngith Y34 and Adithinngithigh Y229* are distinct from each other. According to Tindale (1974), Aretinget (Y34) is one of Winduwinda tribes, Winduwinda being a cover term for twleve 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.
