The Kaurna language from the Adelaide Plains has been undergoing a revival in recent years. The hard work of many people has brought a near extinct language back from the brink.

Jack Buckskin has done some important learning and teaching in the Kaurna language. At a recent Reconciliation Week event, young language student and mentor Kira Bain spoke about what learning Kaurna language and culture from Jack has meant to her.
