Bibelmen is a clan of the Noongar nation

and traditional lands are located around the

lower Blackwood River and the hills between

Blackwood and Warren rivers. It extends east

to Gardner River and Broke Inlet, Scott River

and inland to Manjimup and Bridgetown.

Bibelmen people speak the southeastern

dialect, Kongal-boyal, of the Noongar

language. The people are mostly non-fluent

speakers who have a partial and passive

understanding of the language.

Work on the Noongar language’s recording

and analysis for many years, was undertaken

by pastoralists and linguists. Further

research continues to retrieve and develop a

substantial language database of all clans of

the southwest.
