Young Tradtional Owners Healing Country - Pertame



Pertame Country is 100km south of Mparntwe (Alice Springs) and is considered a critically endangered language with less than 20 fluent speakers.

18-year-old Shania Armstrong is an incredible young Pertame Traditional Owner and an apprentice at the Pertame Language School.

Learning the endangered language from her great grandmother, Shania is already teaching and passing it on to Pertame people of all generations within her community, ensuring it forever remains healthy and strong!
