* The Kamilaroi/Gamilaray nation is one of the largest in Australia covering around 75,000 km2 of northern New South Wales (NSW) and southern Queensland (Qld). Centres now acknowledged within this nation include Tamworth, Moree, Lightening Ridge, Gunnedah, Boggabilla and Singleton.
Gamilaraay is the primary language which was spoken across Kamilaroi country and includes a number of dialects including Yuwalaraay. Greetings include: "yaama maliyaa" (hello mate), "yaama baawaa" (hello sister), and "yaama dhagaan" (hello brother).
Like many others the Kamilaroi nation was impacted heavily by the government practice of forcibly removing Indigenous children from their families - now known as the Stolen Generation. It is reported that between 1883 and 1969, more than 6,200 children were stolen in NSW alone.
