Words in Goldfields Languages

GALCAC makes short films about how words are made in Goldfields Aboriginal languages. A new film is uploaded and available here each week. Most films are around 3 minutes long.

Check out these fun, short films by the GALCAC character, Mr. Nintipayi (Mr. Clever)! They are suitable for children.

Films about the letters of the alphabet in these languages are available as well. These can be found on this website or on the GALCAC YouTube channel Wangka.

These films are great for families to watch, teachers to use in school or anyone learning how to write Goldfields languages.

Come back often to check out the new films!
