User in their first edit, changed westerly to easterly in "thus mixing with the most westerly of the three tribes, the Yankunytjatjara." with a comment "Yankunytatjara country is to the EAST of Pitjantjatjara & Ngaanyatjara". I do not know if this is true, but thought it should be mentioned here on the talk page. ---- Astrokey44|talk 09:03, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Seems correct. [1] East also makes more sense with the surrounding sentence. --Scott Davis Talk 02:47, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

Yes, Yankunytjatjara are the more easterly, with Ngaanyatjara (and Ngaatjatjara) the more westerly, Pitjantjatjara are in the middle. Dougg 00:29, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Pitjantjatjara vs. anangu[edit]

The 2nd, 3rd and 4th paragraphs treat 'anangu' as a synonym for 'Pitjantjatjara', which it is not, and is clearly talking about the whole Western Desert people, not just the Pitj. Dougg 00:29, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

I'm taking out this line:

Their cultural influence extends from the northern edge of the Nullarbor Plain to Lake Amadeus and Balgo in the north and eastwards from Kalgoorlie, Laverton and Leonora in Western Australia as far as Oodnadatta in South Australia - an area of more than 500,000 square kilometres. it describes the entire Western Desert group, not just Pitjantjatjara. I'll replace it with a description of the extent of Pitj lands. Dougg 04:09, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Alice Springs[edit]

Do some Pitjantjatjara live in Alice Springs proper? If so, the article should state this. Badagnani 00:25, 22 November 2006 (UTC) :)

Wrote Traditional first[edit]

Why should they write "Christianity" first??? Most of Them "are" traditionL. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:57, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
