Airiman were an Indigenous Australian tribe from Australia's Northern Territory.


According to Norman Tindale, the Airiman's traditional lands encompassed 800 square miles (2,100 km2).[1] Baldwin Spencer encountered this tribe at the headwaters of the Fitzmaurice River.[2] They were later described by D. S. Davidson who, Tindale claims, incorrectly took them to be Ngarinman.[3][1]
