‘Wangka irrititha munu kuwarritha’ ‘Southern dialects of Luritja (Martutjarra and related) – Old meets New’ project

One of the first activities was for the project team Elder Maureen Campbell and grandkids, Kyra, Reanna and Ian, and nephew, Dwight to participate in a First Nations Media archiving workshop. In this workshop they learned about the FNMA Archive Resources Toolkit https://toolkit.firstnationsmedia.org.au and the Mukurtu platform for content management and for community access to project materials. During the workshop the team began to create a Mukurtu site, which they are now beginning to populate. At this stage the site is not public but you can learn more about mukurtu at https://mukurtu.org/support/what-is-mukurtu.
