Wilman is a clan of the Western Australian

Southwest Noongar Nation. The traditional

land for this clan extended from Wagin,

Narrogin and Williams rivers west to Collie,

Wuraming north to Gnowing, Dattening,

and Pingelly, east to Wickepin, Dudinin and

Lake Grace, and south to Nyabiny (Nampup),

Katanning, Woodanilling and Duranilling.

Wilman is one of several clans associated

with 3 existing dialects in the Noongar nation.

Wilman people speak the southwestern dialect

Kongal-marawar, of the Noongar language.

Most people are non-fluent speakers who

have a partial or passive understanding of the

language.

Sporadic language recording and analysis

was undertaken by pastoralists and linguists

in years gone by. However, further research

continues to retrieve and develop a substantial

database of the language and all clans of the

Southwest.

Wilman AIATSIS code is WWILM
