Yoowat is a clan of the Noongar Nation of

the southwest of WA. Traditional clan lands

extends between Gingin, Moora, New Norcia,

Moore River and Cape Leschenault, north to

Hill River then inland near Miling and Victoria

Plains.

Yoowat people speak the northern dialect,

Djiraly, of the Noongar language. The people

are mostly non-fluent speakers who have

a partial or 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.

Yoowat’s AIATSIS code is W11.
