About Language in the Land: Warlpiri
Language in the Land series:
This year IAD Press honours its 50th anniversary and the International Year of Indigenous Languages by updating its learner’s guides and dictionaries of central Australian Aboriginal languages. Co-sponsored by IAD Press, the Language in the Land series will explore what we can learn about central Australia through the languages spoken by the People of the Land. Every Aboriginal language came from its land, and tells about the relationships among ancestral stories, places and families today. You are invited to join in our ‘cultural conversations’ on ways language learning can help you more carefully listen to this place.
Language in the Land: Warlpiri
The names you give to something influence how you think about it. The names for the seasons and the daily changes in weather can open our senses to changes in our desert climate. Join the multi-talented Robin Granites, co-author of the Learners Guide to Warlpiri course, to discuss ways you can observe, name and think about how our desert changes through the day and the year.
