Revitalising Akarre- Akityarre: New learning for an endangered language

Presenters: Andrena Webb, Maria Ross, C. Turner, Amanda Turner

There is a buzz of energy for language revival and resource development on the Plenty Highway. Located north-east of Mparntwe, the communities of Atitjere and Bonya are working to revitalise their language, and teach the next generation of Akarre-Akityarre speakers. This presentation will share the journey so far: showing how the Akarre-Akityarre speakers are leading this exciting revival, supporting linguistic expertise across their communities, and strengthening their language that is at risk.
