Kaurna (Australian Indigenous Language)

I am learning Kaurna which is an Australian indigenous language that belongs to the indigenous people of the Adelaide Plains in South Australia. Unfortunately it was a sleeping language but has now been revived; as a result of an almost extinct language there is barely any resources, especially online resources. There is a wonderful company called ‘Kaurna Warra Pintyanthi’ who have revived the language and are now teaching the language through their organisation. You can check out their website and YouTube channel here;


Because I like the mechanics of how Memrise teaches languages I decided to compile two Kaurna courses on Memrise for words that I am learning. I am constantly updating it with new words I come across…I am creating this thread to bring awareness to this language and if there are any other people who would like to learn with me as well.
