Learning the Ngadju Language in Dundas

Cr Veronica Wyatt shares her knowledge of the local Ngadju language with the community and visitors to the Shire of Dundas.

Shire of Dundas Cr Veronica Wyatt has been speaking the Ngadju language since she was a child, and now teaches it to local school children. Veronica learnt to speak the language, which is indigenous to the Shire of Dundas, from her aunt and she is keen to pass on her knowledge of it.


An example of a welcome greeting in Ngadju is “Nguntungarri Yalunga Kuli Veronica”, which means “You good? My name is Veronica.”
