Meet the people reclaiming the Wiradyuri language in new NITV Radio podcast


Ahead of NAIDOC Week, NITV Radio has released a new podcast, Ngiyang, which tells the story of how the Wiradyuri language is being reclaimed by the people of central New South Wales and celebrates Indigenous perspectives.

Hosted by Lowanna Grant, NITV Radio Executive Producer, the new podcast features Wiradyuri language pioneer Uncle Stan Grant Senior, along with language teachers and learners, speaking their language and how this has enriched their lives as Wiradyuri people.

Uncle Stan Grant Senior tells how his grandfather Wilfred Johnson taught him Wiradyuri language as a child and instructed him to keep the language alive.

Lowanna is the granddaughter of Uncle Stan Grant Senior and also studied Wiradyuri language herself.

“I’m thrilled to share the stories in Ngiyang with all Australians because it records a part of our history – the reclamation and revival of Wiradjuri language,” she says.

Ngiyang is available on the SBS Audio App, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, LiSTNR and wherever you stream podcasts
