Pinarra Aku

Hosted by:

Pinarra Aku is a children’s language radio show to help teach the local Indigenous Warumungu language of Tennant Creek.

Meet Kathy, Aunty Rosemary and Pinangkarl who will tell you stories, sing songs and play games to help you learn the language. Pinangkarl is a White Cock-a-too who helps you to say the language words. Tennant Creek children are familiar with the White Cock-a-too, as hundreds fill the Tennant Creek sky so it is an appropriate mascot for the show. The word ‘Pinangkarl’ means: clever, bright. Say hello to Pinangkarl, Aunty Rosemary and Kathy!
