The Yerongpan Aboriginal Dancers’, 'Yerongpan' meaning Sandy country descend from Kirwallie, the great ancestor of the Brisbane region. Kirwallie was known to the European settlers as King Sandy. He was King of the Sandy Country. Performers of the Yerongpan dance group carry the Sandy last name to this day. It is a great honour.
Another ancestor of ours, John Bungaree was the Headman of the Miguntyun Clan to the north of the Brisbane river and was born along Migun Dhagun, the spike bend country now known as Gardens Point.
And another ancestor Bulim Bulim (Bulimba) or Kwae Kwae was the headman of the Yerongpan Clan from the South of the Brisbane river to the Logan region.
