The Amijangal were an indigenous Australian people of the Northern Territory.

Country

The Amijangal were a small tribe, occupying in Norman Tindale's estimation, some 100 square miles (260 km2) of coastal territory south of the Daly River, as far as Red Cliff.[1]

People

Some observers, such as Arthur Capell, described the Amijangal as being interchangeable with the Wogait people. On the basis of differences in dialect between the two, however, Tindale designated them as an independent tribal reality.[1]
