Support Kaurna Warra Pintyanthi

KWP conducts its Kaurna language reclamamation and revival mainly with volunteers and part time workers attached to the University of Adelaide - if funding permits.

Financial support has been granted by various programs run by Commonwealth, State and local governments, most recently the Indigenous Languages and the Arts (ILA) of the Government of Australia, and the Adelaide City Council (ACC).  Most of these grants were project specific as for instance the Kaurna Place Names website.

Kaurna language reclamation efforts began in 1989/90 and have achieved impressive results over that period.  Jack Kanya Buckskin is raising his three children (the eldest born in 2011) as bilingual English-Kaurna speakers.

If you wish to support KWP financially, we value any contribution. For language revival to be efficient it needs a long term perspective. At present, the KWP initiators are looking into broadening their base by actively including the second generation of Kaurna and non-Kaurna language learners, to keep developing the language for present-day use.  Our current focus is the training of teachers from within the Kaurna community to transmit their language to children and adults alike.

Your assistance will be of great help.

Feel free to join us at the regular KWP committee meetings.  For more details please contact us.

Our aim is to partner with corporate groups who share our passion and our vision for improved health for this and future generations of Aboriginal people.

A corporate organisation aligning with a charitable cause, such as ours, can value add, build brand equity and reputation and consumers show a greater willingness to stay loyal. It can also inspire staff motivation and retention.
