Yura Ngawarla, the language of the Adnyamathanha people.

Annie: I came across this today, the website for a Yura Ngawarla language program, by the Adnyamathanha people of the Flinders Rangers, SA. The language currently has only 20 fluent speakers so is highly endangered, but it looks like the community is working hard developing language resources and teaching the language, especially to children and young people. I really hope they get continued funding and the program is a success.

    Hi Annie,

    I also posted about the Adnyamathanha people of the Flinders Rangers about 2 weeks ago. Thier language revival class is doing such a fantastic job. They also come up with a digital animation portraying 3 Adnyamathanha kids living in the rangers before the British invasion. The actors are the some of the kids from the class and the whole animation is in Yura Ngawarla.

    Check out the link for ‘Wadu Matyidi’ animation from my post on 30 Sep if you’d like 🙂
