I enjoy making the most of life's experiences, exploring what Adelaide has to offer and sharing my experiences and discoveries with others via WeekendNotes!
Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Wangkanyi
It's NAIDOC week from 7-14 July 2013. NAIDOC is the acronym for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee which is celebrated each year in July, to honour, celebrate and promote awareness of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their history, culture and achievements.
As part of NAIDOC week, the Art Gallery of South Australia, through their exhibition, HEARTLAND is celebrating with introductory sessions to the Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara language - the most common indigenous language of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands (APY) in remote northern South Australia.
On Monday, 8 July 2013; Wednesday, 10 July 2013 and Saturday, 13 July 2013, Karina Lester will introduce participants of "Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Wangkanyi" to the Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara language of the APY lands. Sessions are 60 minutes in duration and are suitable for all ages.
Karina is the Aboriginal Language Worker with the University of Adelaide's Mobile Language Team.
These sessions are free but bookings are essential (contact: 08 8207 7005). Bring a notepad and pencil and meet at 11am, at the entrance to the HEARTLAND exhibition (at the bottom of the stairs) and join Karina in exploring the Art Gallery of SA's indigenous arts.
