Abstract: ‘Nangarang’ is not a Kaurna name, and no Kaurna name is known for this site. RM Berndt’s Ngarrindjeri informant Karlowan gave it around 1940 as the name of the coastal cave in which Tjirbuki finally laid to rest the smoke-dried body of his beloved nangari (nephew). The site is probably the same as Milerum’s coastal cave near the mouth of New Salt Creek, 6 km north of Cape Jervis (see PNS 5.4.2/01 ‘Yanawing’ and 5.4.2/02 ‘Watpardung’). In Ngarrindjeri the name means ‘place of the nephew (sister’s son)’.
