WURREKANGURR (we all speak) is the Wamba Wamba / Wemba Wemba language resource website.
It was established by the Yarkuwa Indigenous Knowledge Centre, on behalf of the traditional owners of our language and culture, for all speakers and learners of the Wamba Wamba / Wemba Wemba language as part of the Deniliquin Indigenous Language Project. This Language is spoken by Wamba Wamba and Perrepa Perrepa peoples.
It is based around a searchable language dictionary of more than 1200 language entries and has been developed from the ‘WembaWemba Dictionary’ by Luise A. Hercus. The original dictionary entries were collected by Hercus during interviews between 1962 and 1970 with ‘the late Nancy Egan, Stanley Day and John Taylor and collated with earlier information, particularly that from A.C. Stone (1911)’.Go to Wurrekangurr: culture.yarkuwa.org.au
