Title: Mulla-Yakki (Murla-Yaki) and Mullayakki-Parri (Murlayaki-Pari)
Author: Schultz, Chester

Abstract: Mullayakki (or, in our New Spelling, Murlayaki) is the most probable interpretation of the Kaurna place-name recorded as “Mulleakki” by the German missionaries in 1839-40. It named the territory of a Kaurna-speaking group located near Port Gawler: from the mouth of the Gawler River upstream, including the rich well-watered alluvial flats of Buckland Park and Virginia, probably up to somewhere around Penfield Gardens, together with adjacent strips of the surrounding plain.
