Menthe people

The Methne, occasionally called Menthajangal (Menhdheyangal), are an indigenous Australian people of the Northern Territory.


The Menthe had approximately 300 square miles (780 km2) of land around the Bonaparte Gulf. Along the coast it ran south from Red Cliff down past Cape Scott. Their hinterland extension had a depth of some 10 miles bordering on the coastal swamps in that area.[1]
