Nguldi arndu!

Welcome to this resource for Tanganekald language and culture. We hope you enjoy your visit! 
Please respect our language and the stories and songs we share here. For us, nothing can replace the experience of being on our beautiful Tanganekald country. But for many people it is not always easy to visit country. Through this resource you can see, hear and speak Tanganekald language and that is the next best thing to being on country.

Nginti nankeri nganawi mitji Clyde.
Ngapi nguldi arndu Raukkannendi.

'How are you going? My name's Clyde. 
I come from Raukkan - that's where this is taking place.' 
Clyde Rigney, Tanganekald Elder
