Kaurna Warra Pintyanthi

Kaurna Warra Pintyanthi (KWP) grew out of pre-existing teaching and research into the Kaurna language.

In 2002, Rob Amery, together with Kaurna Elders, Dr Alitya Wallara Rigney and Dr Lewis Yerloburka O’Brien, formed KWP to promote the Kaurna language, oversee Kaurna language research and resource development, and to deal with the numerous requests for Kaurna names, translations and information. This latter function is now performed by Kaurna Warra Karrpanthi (KWK).

KWK was formed in 2013, to support the work of KWP. KWK provides the service delivery arm of the Kaurna language movement, holding courses and workshops. KWP now focuses on research and resource production. KWP and KWK complement each other.

In 2013, the University of Adelaide signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with KWP, amongst other things, committing the University to ongoing teaching and research into the Kaurna language.
