This colourful book introduces the numbers one (1) to ten (10) in the Wiradjuri language. Each double page spread introduces the number in English, in Wiradjuri and numerically. These are accompanied by a photographic image depicting the number in a cultural way. For example, the number four is represented by young boys in a hunting stance holding Indigenous hunting tools and the number seven is represented by seven children as emus complete with masks.
There is a pronunciation guide on how to say the numbers in Wiradjuri as well as the Wiradjuri names of the animals and family relationship words used to demonstrate the numbers.
Wiradjuri Country covers a large part of inland New South Wales and there is a growing recognition and promotion of the importance of the Wiradjuri language as it connects to, and maintains Culture. A Wiradjuri dictionary has been produced and has been used in the creation of this book. There is also a free downloadable Wiradjuri language app that has been developed by the Wiradjuri Study Centre.
