The Buruna are an indigenous Australian people of the Mid West region of Western Australia.


According to Norman Tindale's calculation, the Buruna's tribal lands covered about 3,300 square miles (8,500 km2). He places them at Yannarie River (Pindar Creek) and southwest as far as Winning Pool and the northern side of the Lyndon River. Their eastern confines lay around Mount Hamlet and Maroonah. They occasionbally ventured into Tenma territory at the Henry River.[1]

History of contact

The remnants of the Buruna moved to and settled around Towera Station.[1]
