The three wanjina tribe - They travel all around the Kimberley side, they names are Wamadali, Rimeagemorda and Wanalerie, they were looking for a place to stay. Wanalerie talk to Wamadalie "you must go and find your home to stay". And so he went and found a place and that was the salt water side. Then he told the other one and that was Rimiagemoreda so he went and he found a place and that was were the Wunumbed country side and then he stayed there. That's when Wanalerie went and stayed at a place called Gibb River that's why the name of Gibb River is called Wanalerie in blackfella name.
