The area originally was set up as the Mitchell River Mission in 1916. Aboriginal people from the region were gradually drawn from their traditional lands into the mission settlement. Language groups associated with countries in the Kowanyama region are Yir-Yoront, Yirrk Thangalkl, Koko Bera and Kunjen (Uw
and Olkola dialects).
More than 1000 people now live in Kowanyama, making it one of the largest communities on the Cape York Peninsula. Kowanyama's Aboriginal people continue to identify strongly with their ancestral countries and with the languages, stories, songs, dances, and histories associated with those countries. Language groups associated with countries in the Kowanyama region are Yir Yoront, Yirrk Thangalkl, Koko Bera, Uw
, and Olkola.
are an Indigenous Australian people living on the southwestern part of the Cape York Peninsula, Queensland in Australia. Their neighbours to the northwest are the Yir-Yoront, Their traditional lands are around the Alice River and the Crosbie River, and further west around the Mitchell River and into Gulf Country.
Water is often a key element in aaboriginal birth narratives, and the Uw
, like other Kunjen, associate points in water courses as generative sources where the spirit child quickens into life the fetus. Each member of the community has a point in the waterscape that indicates their 'home', the point where a water spirit enlivened them, and the place is called a "errk elampungk" (home place of your image) where the placenta is buried.
As one of the Kunjen peoples, the Uw
suffered deeply from the sudden incursion of whites when the discovery of gold in their region caused the Palmer River Gold Rush in 1873. Cattle stations and pastoralists soon followed to cater for the golddiggers, and, as the indigenous peoples fought to retain a foothold on their tribal lands and resources, they were massacred and pushed westward. Missions were established, such as the one at Kowanyama in 1903, and there a remnant population of a thousand tribal people, mainly Kunjen, Kokobera and Yir Yiront congregated.
The short-beaked echidna was commonly called the spiny anteater in older books, though this term has fallen out of fashion since the echidna bears no relation to the true anteaters. It has a variety of names in the indigenous languages of the regions where it is found. The Noongar people from southwestern Western Australia call it the "nyingarn". In Central Australia southwest of Alice Springs, the Pitjantjatjara term is "tjilkamata" or "tjirili", from the word "tjiri" for spike of porcupine grass "(Triodia irritans)". The word can also mean slowpoke. In central Cape York Peninsula, it is called "(minha) kekoywa" in Pakanh, where "minha" is a qualifier meaning 'meat' or 'animal', "(inh-)ekorak" in Uw
and "(inh-)egorag" in Uw Olkola, where "inh-" is a qualifier meaning 'meat' or 'animal'.
Where their ranges overlap, it is much more difficult to distinguish between eastern grey and western grey kangaroos, which are closely related. They have a very similar body and facial structure, and their noses/muzzles are fully covered with fine hair (though that is not obvious at a distance, their noses do look noticeably different from the noses of reds and wallaroos). The eastern grey's colouration is a light-coloured grey or brownish-grey, with a lighter silver or cream, sometimes nearly white, belly. The western grey is a dark dusty brown colour, with more contrast especially around the head. Indigenous Australian names include "iyirrbir" (Uw
and Uw Olkola) and "kucha" (Pakanh). The highest ever recorded speed of any kangaroo was set by a large female eastern grey kangaroo.
language is, together with its close dialect relative Uw Olkola, a member of the Kunjen branch of the Pama-Nyungan language family. It has a notable characteristic of maintaining a thorough distinction between the standard content forms of the language and those used in contexts where respect is demanded, such as speaking to those who have kinship relations with one's mother-in-law. Tne register of respect changes nouns and verbs, for example, while leaving unaltered words that have a purely grammatical function. Bruce Sommer has argued that this together with other Kunjen languages is an exception to the principle advanced by Roman Jakobson and Morris Halle in 1956 according to which consonant +vowel is a universal syllable pattern.
In 1827, Jennings proposed the name "Psittacus niger" for the bird. The binomial combination had already been used by Carl Linnaeus for the lesser vasa parrot in 1758, and by Johann Friedrich Gmelin for the palm cockatoo in 1788; it was thus invalid even though both other species were already known by different names at the time. Alternate common names include "Banks' black cockatoo", "Banksian black cockatoo", or simply "black cockatoo". Indigenous people of the central Cape York Peninsula have several names for the bird: "(minha) pachang" in Pakanh; "(inh -) inhulg" in Uw
; and "(inh -) anhulg" in Uw Olkola. (The bracketed prefix ("inh-" or "minha") is a qualifier meaning 'meat' or 'animal'.) "Ngarnarrh" or "KarnamarrTo" are terms used by the Gunwinggu of Arnhem Land. In Central Australia, southwest of Alice Springs, the Pitjantjatjara term for the subspecies "C. b. samueli" is "iranti". "Karrak" is a Noongar term derived from the call for the southwestern race "C. b. naso". In the language of the Bungandidj of south-eastern South Australia and western Victoria this bird was called "treen".
Early naturalist George Shaw had called it the blue-faced honey-sucker in 1826. Other common names include "white-quilled honeyeater", and "blue-eye". Its propensity for feeding on the flowers and fruit of bananas in north Queensland has given it the common name of "banana-bird". A local name from Mackay in central Queensland is "pandanus-bird", as it is always found around "Pandanus" palms there. It is called "morning-bird" from its dawn calls before other birds of the bush. "Gympie" is a Queensland bushman's term. Thomas Watling noted a local indigenous name was "der-ro-gang". John Hunter recorded the term "gugurruk" (pron. "co-gurrock"), but the term was also applied to the black-shouldered kite ("Elanus axillaris"). It is called "(minha) yeewi", where "minha" is a qualifier meaning 'meat' or 'animal', in Pakanh and "(inh-)ewelmb" in Uw
and Uw Olkola, where "inh-" is a qualifier meaning 'meat' or 'animal', in three aboriginal languages of central Cape York Peninsula.
