Language

A dictionary of the Wonnarua language is being developed. Currently there are over 1000 words recorded. The WNAC has formed a Reclamation Committee with members from the traditional and local knowledge holders of the area. Once the dictionary is compiled it will be presented to the Wonnarua Elders Council for their endorsement to go on this website. Recording and preserving the remaining Wonnarua language is a key priority of the WNAC.
