28 episodes

Australia is full of diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations. From Bunuba to Wiradjuri, palawa to Kala Lagaw Ya, every mob has its own language and unique culture. Each episode of Little Yarns will take you on a journey to a different nation to learn a first word on Country.

We’ll travel south across the Tasman Sea to lutruwita (Tasmania) and learn about the mums of palawa country. Look out for crocs in Wadjigany, while we find out about the seasons in Batjamalh language. And keep your eyes peeled for an eight-legged creepy crawly, as we hear how Yawuru language has changed over time. There are hundreds of first languages to listen to and learn from!

Little Yarns is a co-listening podcast series for pre-schoolers. Ideal for families listening together at home or as a listening resource in early learning centres, Little Yarns explores the diverse languages, stories and countries of Indigenous Australia.
