The Yidinji[]

The Yidinji, also known as the Yidiny and Yidindj, are an Aboriginal Australian people in Far North Queensland who speak the Yidiny language. It is made up of eight clans which served as custodians of various tracts of Yidinji country. The Yidinji lands were in lowland rainforest areas, stretching from Yarrabah down to the south, where their borders met those of the Ngajanji and the Wanyurr.


Ye-i-nie was a Yidinji warrior known as a peacemaker and known by British authorities as the "King" of Cairns. Ye-i-nie was presented with a "king" plate in 1905.

Dawn of Man[]

"We greet you, Ye-i-nie, warrior, leader, and Peace Maker of the Yidinji! Your people are an ancient one, with your ancestors inhabiting the vast rainforests of what we now call Far North Queensland for tens of thousands of years. Like the Djumbun transforming from a grub to a scorpion, your people grew to be honourable and independent, fierce but wise, thriving in both peace and in war. And though those from afar may have intruded upon your land, with their guns and their cattle, still the Yidinji people are unbroken, and connected to their homeland!


Art by Arilasqueto

Great Peace Maker, the Yidinji call on you once more to represent them! Will you carve out a new land for your people, and defend it fiercely? Will you see your young grow to embody the spirit of the Djumbun? Will you build a civilization to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "You are entering the lands of the Yidinji, traveler. We hope for peace between our people, but will not shy away from war."

Defeat: "You have bested us, and our yidi will scatter. But we are a resilient and self-sufficient people! You may disperse us, but you cannot defeat us!"
