Here is a video of the Australian National Anthem being sung in the Yugambeh language, which is the language of the Ngarahgwal people (Gold Coast area). The anthem is sung by Tyrone Drahm and Alec Warner from the Aboriginal centre for performing arts in South Brisbane as part of a ceremony promoting reconciliation.
Other versions of the anthem have been performed at schools, such as this one at Soldier’s Settlement school in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney.
The Yugumbeh language app was the first Aboriginal language app made and is a significant piece of technology for language revival and maintenance.
