n 2006 we designed the self-contained Ninti Ngapartji website, the online language and culture centre of the Ngapartji Ngapartji project. Here subscribers can take part in the Pitjantjatjara language course, with weekly multimedia content produced by young people in Central Australia, assisted by their families and elders. Our site graphics illustrate the way in which our knowledge and experience of our surroundings is tied inextricably to language, and suggest that an improved understanding of Indigenous language and culture can greatly enrich our relationship to this country.
