The Yinikurtira people of the North West region of Australia are generally thought to have been a sub-group of the Talandji language speakers, although the exact nature of their connection is somewhat uncertain.1 The Talandji language is reasonably well documented and still has a few living speakers.2 In contrast, the Yinikurtiri language is classified as extinct. 3 Discovering early Yinikurtira wordlists could potentially give us a productive comparison with the known Talandji language as well as a window into the once vibrant Yinikurtira culture.
