Australian Indigenous Languages useful links


Iltyem-iltyem is an online resource for sign languages used in Indigenous communities in Central Australia. The website contains several hundred video clips of signs for public view. The project was piloted by members of the sign language team from Ti Tree in Central Australia. The resource is for people who want to teach and learn Central Australian sign languages. It will also help people learn spoken language, as most of the video clips contain sign language and speech together.
