Gudang Current Activities
The Injinoo Ikya Ancestral Language Action Team undertakes activities which benefit the Angkamuthi, Atambaya and Yadhaykenu speech communities. Gudang is also an Injinoo Ikya target language however there is a dearth of linguistic information available and no individuals have come forward to initiate Gudang-specific work. Some Gudang members are involved in the Ancestral Language Action Teams however.
They are working on producing ceremonial scripts: we currently have welcome to country speeches written in Angkamuthi, Atambaya and are working on Yadhaykenu.
We have recorded a CD of Injinoo Ikya hymns and the Lord’s Prayer is now available in each language of the Injinoo Ikya.
We have two books in production, one in Atambaya and one in Angkamuthi.
Angkamuthi language experts have taken part in several Songs on Country workshops, composing several contemporary songs of which 2 have been recorded and another 6 are in production. One song has been turned into an engaging animation and can be seen here.
