Gurindji to English Dictionary
Gurindji is a traditional language of the Victoria River District in the Northern Territory (Australia). Gurindji people became well known in the 1960-70s due to their influence on Australian politics and the Indigenous land rights movement. They were instrumental in gaining equal wages for Aboriginal cattle station employees and they were also the first Aboriginal group to recover control of their traditional lands.
