Guest Speaker Uncle Rod O'Brien

 

 Uncle Rod OBrien

 

Indigenous languages and first nations culture

 

Uncle Rod is a proud Kaurna man and devotes much time to helping other Kaurna people identify with the language and culture. He is an active member of the Adelaide Aboriginal community, volunteering his time as a Chairperson on a number of committees which include the Kaurna Warra Karrpanthi Aboriginal Corporation, Kaurna Yerta Aboriginal Corporation and Kura Yerlo Inc.

Uncle Rod has an Honours and Bachelor's Degree in Applied Science in Aboriginal Community Development and Management from Curtin University. Prior to joining Wirltu Yarlu, he worked in the State Government for over 23 years in the Department for Child Protection.

Uncle Rod is passionate about reclaiming Kaurna language, and hopes to see Kaurna language and culture being taught in every school in the Adelaide Plains region. In recognition of his contribution to the preservation and promotion of Kaurna culture and language, Uncle Rod was named a finalist for the Local Hero Award as part of the 2021 SA Australian of Year Awards. 

"My dream is for the Kaurna language to be revived to a level where there are hundreds of people able to converse in it with meaningful dialogue on a daily basis. For I believe, if it is spoken, people will gain strength, knowledge and power from its us, thus keeping alive Kaurna culture."
