The Barungguan are an Aboriginal Australian people of the Cape York Peninsula of Northern Queensland. The name is associated with three languages: Ganganda, Umpithamu and Morrobolam.
The anthropologist Donald Thomson classified them (speaking of them as the Yintjinga) as one of what he called the Kawadji peoples.
According to Norman Tindale, writing in 1974,[a] the Barungguan had about 700 square miles (1,800 km2) of tribal land, on the western side of Princess Charlotte Bay and extending northwards toward Cape Sidmouth. Their furthest northern limit appears to have been around the Rocky River, beyond which they rarely ventured.
The Barungguan were organized into clans the names of at least two of which are known:
As with the neighbouring Walmbaria, tooth avulsion was practiced on all members of either sex among the Barungguan, with either the right or left upper incisor extracted for ritual purposes.
