About Wiradjuri Kids

Wiradjuri kids online was developed to provide opportunities for our kids and youth to learn and strengthen their knowledge and understanding of Wiradjuri language.

The reclamation of Wiradjuri language by Wiradjuri people is critical to the survival of our language long into the future.

The resources on this website are newly created and will continue to grow. Level 1 is the beginning and is aimed at children from the age of three. However, parents can easily read many Level books to younger children to start building awareness of word sounds and grammar from an early age.

By subscribing to this website you are supporting the continual development of these important resources now and into the future.

Wiradjuri kids is motivated by the reclamation of language by our people and we are supportive of other First Nations groups who are working towards their own language reclamation. The books on this website form a solid template which can be easily adapted through simple changes in language for other groups who may be interested in using the templates. Enquiries are welcome by CLICKING HERE.
