Jack Buckskin is the teacher of an endangered language. From the northern Adelaide suburb of Salisbury, Jack’s mission is to teach the Kaurna language, the language of his ancestors, to as many people as he can in his lifetime. But this is not easy. The language was driven to near extinction over a century ago. Now, Jack and fellow language speakers are sculpting a new Kaurna language and culture, and through that seeking to bring a new way of being to the youth of suburban Adelaide, in the form of a new Aboriginal identity, and with that, hope.
