Talk:The tribes of Bangalla

From PhantomWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There might be some tribes missing from the list - Frew's Phantom Encyclopedia claims to have counted a total 76 tribes (although no actual list appear). The Wiki list atleast appears to be identical with the Frew list up until #26, since The Rope People appeares as No 26 on both lists.

If anyone is able to find the missing tribes (if any) please add them :) Pjär 06:27, 3 March 2008 (CET)

Should any tribe that another publisher I.E. Team Fantomen or K/C/GK be included under a different section ? the title does say Chronological list of the tribes of Bangalla not just Falk Created ones --Dark Lord Xander3 04:10, 29 March 2008 (CET)

Sure thing - just keep 'em coming, as long as the origins are correctly referred to 04:59, 29 March 2008 (CET)
Yeah, I'd like to see such a list and would prefer if it was separated by publishers. Member 7 09:36, 31 March 2008 (CEST)

Do we want to include every tribe by TF in that section, or "just" the ones created by them? Pjär 15:56, 31 March 2008 (CEST)

as i have written previously on the Article it would be best to list them by their creators so if TF created them then include it in the TF section but if Falk created it include it in the Falk section--Dark Lord Xander3 07:25, 1 April 2008 (CEST)

I've expanded the information given in the Falk section. Is it OK? Pjär 12:47, 1 April 2008 (CEST)
Yes, very smart! Member 7 13:38, 1 April 2008 (CEST)
Looks great --Dark Lord Xander3 09:15, 2 April 2008 (CEST)


Are the "Oogaan" tribe of "The Rogue Elephant" (D99) and the "Oongaan" tribe of "The Lost Catacombs" (S166) the same tribe? I added the Oongaans to the list, but maybe it's just a misspelling, like "Boomsbay" / "Boomsby" Prison in "The Crime Apprentices" (D215).

  • Good spotting! Actually, Oongaan has been mentioned off and on ever since 1971. I missed it since the name generally has been changed to Oogaan in Swedish reprints, but you are absolutely right that it should be included. I moved it to its proper place in the chronological list, though. Pjär 13:46, 15 April 2008 (CEST)


I found that the tribe"Sinku" was introduced in 1967 in the King comics story "The Story of Hero" by Bill Harris. I have therefore added it to the list of tribes Created by Gold Key, King Comics and Charlton Comics. However, this tribe is also included in the list of tribes Created by Team Fantomen. It has been attributed to year 1970 and to story "The Cruel Queen". As I have not read that story so I have not deleted that reference. Administrators of the site may decide.

I didn't find that tribe in Danish reprint of "The Cruel Queen", but if it appeared there, then it will be probably removed from Team Fantomen list. Delboj (talk) 18:56, 8 September 2018 (CEST)

The Golden Men

I think there was one tribe created by Moonstone - The Golden Men in the story "Valley of the Golden Men". Delboj (talk) 20:54, 9 September 2018 (CEST)

Yes. You are correct.Paramjitmann (talk) 15:40, 10 September 2018 (CEST)


In the page "the tribes of Bangalla" the list of tribes Created by Lee Falk mentions the tribe "Tez" at serial number 48. However, according to the story quoted "Gooroo's Jungle Muggers" Tez appears to be a place, a location and not a tribe.Paramjitmann (talk) 13:56, 11 September 2018 (CEST)

They are definetely considered a tribe within Team Fantomen stories, see article Tez. Andreas (talk) 14:13, 11 September 2018 (CEST)

In the created by Lee Falk list of tribes "Noganda" appears at no.68 as appearing in the story The Albee. In the Fantomen team story "Julie and the Witchdoctor" a tribe is mentioned as "Naganda'. Can we consider it to be the same tribe? Paramjitmann (talk) 18:01, 12 September 2018 (CEST)

New Tribes and other changes

According to the information with me we need to add four more tribes in the list of tribes created by Lee Falk...
Svanga Headhunters mentioned in "The Beachcomber" the 4th Phantom Sunday story (1940),
Oringa tribe mentioned in "The Professor" the 44th Phantom daily story (1952),
Lorogu/Loguru tribe mentioned in the "The Chain" is the 34th Phantom Sunday story (1953),
and Otanbee tribe mentioned in "The Drummer of Timpenni" the 87th Phantom daily story (1964)
Also Mori tribe's first appearance needs to be changed.Administrators may like to decide. Paramjitmann (talk) 10:43, 16 October 2018 (CEST)
No chance that Mori first time appeared in 117th daily story. Delboj (talk) 15:39, 16 October 2018 (CEST)
I have found them as "Mora" in D112 "The Fence". Andreas (talk) 16:24, 16 October 2018 (CEST)
Yes. But where is from informations for third Sunday story? I can't find they there. Delboj (talk) 16:35, 16 October 2018 (CEST)
I also found first mention to 'Mora fishermen' in D112. But they definitely do not appear to be in the third Sunday story. Paramjitmann (talk) 17:26, 16 October 2018 (CEST)

New pages on tribes

I assume we want pages on all the tribes which are displayed in RED. I just wanted to be sure before I start on the project of making all those pages and images.Opinion requested from Delboj, Andreas, MiGi. Paramjitmann (talk) 21:52, 13 November 2018 (CET)

Probably yes, but it would be good if Andreas can say something about that. Delboj (talk) 21:54, 13 November 2018 (CET)
