The United Nations has declared 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages. To celebrate, for each month this year, you’re invited to view greetings for different languages.
For April, we feature the languages Aboriginal (Yankunyjatjara) and German:
Nganampa Mama-God Ilkari munu nganampa Mantanguru palyanguru nganananya blessamilila munulanya Godaku pilunpa ungama – May our God of Heaven and of our beautiful Earth bless us and bring us God’s peace
Gott schütze dich – God bless you
