The Nanggikorongo are an indigenous Australian people of the Northern territory.


There is some dispute as to whether Nanggikorongo refers to this tribe or is a "big name" toponym for a place on the Murinbata coastline.[1]


The Nanggikorongo's traditional lands extended over some 1,200 square miles (3,100 km2), east of Wadeye/Port Keats and inland to the Moyle River.[1]


W. E. H.Stanner suggested Nangiomeri as an alternative name, while Norman Tindale called for further research to clarify what relation the Nanggikorongo had with the more easterly Nanggumiri.[1]

Alternative names

  • Mangikurungu.
  • Nordaniman. (an error)
  • Nordanimin.[1]
