In Australian Aboriginal English, does "Cheeky" have meanings different from those found in other varieties of English?
In the Baz Luhrmann movie "Australia", the word "Cheeky" was used by the Aboriginal character Nullah:
Miss boss! We gotta get those fat cheeky bulls into that big bloody metal ship!
(However, Australia might be unreliable when it comes to Australian Aboriginal English)
The Wikipedia article Australian Aboriginal English indirectly talks about "Cheeky". It doesn't fully define it, but suggests it has distinct meanings in Australian Aboriginal English:
Another use [of "rubbish" ] is meaning something is not dangerous, for example, non-venomous snakes are all considered to be rubbish while in contrast, venomous snakes are all cheeky.
