Re: place names and fossils



Another reason to collect and aim to preserve as much
as possible of these peoples' traditions as still
possible... the Tjapwuring language for example is
sadly extinct, essentially prohibiting to get behind
the original stories of the "mihirung".

Which language? This supposedly comprehensive list http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Australian_Aboriginal_languages doesn't contain it, and (at least) the first page of Google results is about dromornithids. It's not a dialect of the Western Desert language...


I'm asking because speakers of related languages may have related myths.
