As told by Peter Nangurama Wurrawilya, Alec Narrijanga Bara Bara, and David Mamarika to Julie Waddy in 1981. Note: Expect some errors. Place names may have another pronunciation and yet others are not included because they may not have been suggested already. Unintentional errors will occur because many of these names have been recorded while aboard a vessel or through the use of maps.
