Location information
Olgol (sometimes, Olkol) was and is spoken to the south of Olkola proper, say, from the Alice River southward (Rigsby 2007 p.c.). Middle Coleman River; south to Crosbie River. Despite similarities in name and contiguity, it seems that the Kokangol are a separate tribe higher up on the Alice River watershed (Tindale 1974).
