Keeping APY Culture Alive in Mylor Shelter


The Adelaide Hills has been sanctuary to a small group of vulnerable women and children from SA's remote Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr Sam Osborne, Associate Director for regional engagement (APY Lands) at the University of South Australia, has worked with Housing SA, the State Government and Baptist Care SA to facilitate a program at a campground in Mylor to provide shelter for families unable to get back home due to strict bio-security rules.

He joins Jennie Lenman in this podcast to discuss how first-language lessons are helping to engage children and keep their culture alive.
