Language of Belonging - Wadu Matyidi EDUCATION RESOURCE

Language of Belonging: Wadu Matyidi - Trailer

Language of Belonging is a multi-platform education resource based on the ground breaking Indigenous short animation Wadu Matyidi and the five accompanying behind the scenes mini documentaries. Designed specifically for Primary-aged students, this diverse learning program gives students the opportunity to explore the Adnyamathanha language, culture, stories and traditions, and develop their own portfolio. Wadu Matyidi tells, in language, the story of three adventurous kids who set out for a day of exploration, playing games and spooking one another with tales of ancient creatures, until they see unusual tracks that get their hearts and imaginations racing. Then, unexpectedly they make a discovery that changes their lives forever. Could it be the Yamuti?
