Abstract: Kaurna Warra Pintyandi (KWP) has approved the use of the Kaurna term Yaitya-kauwingga as a class name (generic) which can be applied to any reliable source of fresh water. KWP has also approved the use of Yaitya-kauwingga by Bill and Janet Page in the officially approved name of the Yaitya-kauwingga Homestead and Sanctuary for wildlife, on Nowhere Else Road a little south of Rapid Bay. ‘Jaitjakawengga Reserve’ is a name given by the District Council of Yankalilla, probably in the 1980s, to a recreation reserve in Second Valley (on Recreation Drive from Boathaven Avenue to Riverside Drive). The Council’s source is currently unknown, but is likely to have been NB Tindale or his papers. The spelling represents the same word as Yaitya-kauwingga.
