123 Song in Pitjantjatjara

 123 Song in Pitjantjatjara

Sticking with the theme of songs in Indigenous languages, I found this clip for a kids’ song in Pitjantjatjara. Even though it’s a children’s song, I think it also provides a great model for adult language learning. Firstly, it starts out quite slowly and with subtitles so you know what’s being said. Visually, it’s also very easy to follow, with the digits ‘1,2,3’ being shown and then one, two, three children. As the song progresses and you become more familiar with the words, it gets faster and the subtitles disappear. What a fun and effective way to learn a language! What’s more, these have to be some of the cutest kids in the world!!!

    Several years ago I spent some days in Amata for a reportage on aboriginal painting. I’m in search of traditional Pitjantjatjara music : where can I get it ?
