This blog has been set up to support the Dieri Aboriginal Corporation language revitalisation project that was funded by an Indigenous Languages Support (ILS) grant from the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sport. The project ran for the period July 2012 to September 2013. The ILS project included linguists Peter K. Austin and Greg Wilson.

The ILS project ran workshops and developed materials to support Dieri language revitalisation, and this blog reports on the progress of the project, and subsequent work on the Dieri language.

  2. My research is into the journey made by Dieri men to obtain ochre from the Bookatoo area. I am seeking information about the journey – the time of the year, season – and the subsequent violence between shepherds/squatters that resulted. I am completing a work supported by the Australia Council literature board.
