Budjiti Native Title Claim

The claim area is roughly the area bounded by Yowah, Thargomindah, Hungerford, Eulo and Cunnamulla.

The Budjiti people are described as the biological descendants of the following apical ancestors

Jessie Brooks
Gypsy Brooks
Lizzie Brooks

Appeared in the Courier Mail dated March 21, 2015

It is interesting that there are only three apical ancestors listed for this large area.

Some details of these ancestors can be seen in the book Matya Mundu - A History of the Aboriginal People of South-East Queensland by H. McKellar and published in 1984.
