Reliable historical records of aboriginal people on the
Central Plateau are sparse, but illuminate in places the bare
evidence of the middens which fringe the numerous lakes and
George Augustus Robinson records in his diaries some
names for the people who occupied this area: GORE.RER.PUN.MAIR.
IN.NER.PAIR.EN.NER and elsewhere LUG.GER.MAIR.RER.NER.PAIR.RER.
with an alternative name NOE.BER.RER.KOWN.YER.PAIR.RER.NER.
These are not the names used by the people for themselves
but descriptive titles from people of other tribes. The suffix
MAIR.IN.NER.PAIR.EN.NER qualifies a general name with "many of
them." It is likely that there were many small groups roaming
this area who were loosely described by a collective title.
