Jack Kanya Kudnuitya Buckskin
Kaurna Man and founder of Kuma Kaaru Cultural Services
Welcome To Country & How I Discovered My Language
Jack Kanya Kudnuitya Buckskin is a proud Kaurna and Narungga man who has dedicated his life to learning and passing on his knowledge and language of the Adelaide Plains to future generations of Kaurna people.
Jack founded the Adelaide based Kuma Kaaru Cultural Services which works to educate and share culture through song, dance and workshops.
He believes that as Kaurna language has come from the land this is the only place in the world you will find it, it was in the country before we were born and it is our duty to ensure it continues by learning and using it together.
“My mission is to teach the Kaurna language, the language of my ancestors, to as many people as I can in my lifetime”
