Wardaman language

The Wardaman people are a small group of Indigenous Australians living about 200km South-West of Katherine in the Northern Territory of Australia. They speak the Wardaman language which is said to be a near-extinct Australian Aboriginal language.

Perhaps the most famous Wardaman person is Bill Yidumduma Harney, who is known as an advocate for Indigenous Australians, and has written several books, including his most recent, on Australian Aboriginal Astronomy, written with Hugh Cairns, entitled Dark Sparklers.
