Cool. Are you going to try for Arrernte materials? or Pitjantjatjara? Or something else?
Also, I came across this blog post talking about data from the Australian census:
"It’s difficult to find data for indigenous languages from what’s been released so far, and it’s difficult to judge the reliability of the census data (for a number of reasons), but there are some heartening reported numbers of indigenous language being spoken in the home, for Warlpiri (2500 dwellings across Australia), Djambarrpuyngu (3000 dwellings) and Pitjantjatjara (4000 dwellings). Kriol (6800 dwellings) and Yumplatok a.k.a. Torres Strait Creole (5300 dwellings) are English-based creoles spoken in a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia."
I also had a hard time trying to find info while navigating the census site. I'm kind of surprised the numbers for Pitjantjatjara are so high...but hopefully, they just reflect good news.
