Australian Indigenous Language Search - Please note that due to technical and licensing issues, this resource searches a select number of dictionaries and resources only. Please use the dropdown option below to locate a more complete range of individual dictionaries.
This guide helps you to find the English meaning of an Aboriginal word.Many Aboriginal word dictionaries are organised differently to their English counterparts. They are often arranged according to locations, such as state, and within this, according to the tribe which used the word. Thus, knowing where a word originated from or which tribe used the word will help you to narrow down your search. If you cannot find a word, it may be that it is not in a dictionary.
