He did not record the reason for his inappropriate usage of the name; it might have been the result of a misunderstanding, or perhaps Curr chose it for its aesthetic value, as he later opined that Aboriginal words were ‘frequently very euphonious’. 1 At Tongala Curr encountered for the first time the Indigenous people who are the ancestors of the Yorta Yorta claimant group.
