$120.00

Wadjari is a clan of the Noongar Nation of the

southwest of WA. The clan’s traditional land

extends from near Gairdner River east to

Point Malcolm; inland to the edge of coastal

slope, approximately 50km, through to Kent,

Ravensthorpe, Fanny Cove, Esperance and

Cape Arid

Wadjari people speak the southeastern dialect,

Kongal-boyal, of the Noongar language. The

people are mostly non-fluent speakers who

have a partial and passive understanding of

the language.

Work on the Noongar language’s recording

and analysis for many years, was undertaken

by pastoralists and linguists. Further

research continues to retrieve and develop a

substantial language database of all clans of

the southwest.

Wadjari’s AIATSIS code is W8.
