Aboriginal Cultural Service Mentor
Tauondi Aboriginal College
Jack Kanya Kudnuitya Buckskin is a proud Kaurna and Narungga man who has dedicated his life to learning and passing on his knowledge and language of the Adelaide Plains to future generations of Kaurna people. Jack currently works with Tauondi Aboriginal College in Port Adelaide as an Aboriginal Cultural Service Mentor, and has been a strong icon in the revitalisation process of Kaurna language through managing and performing song and dance with Kuma Kaaru Cultural Services and through teaching Kaurna language. He believes that as Kaurna language has come from the land this is the only place in the world you will find it, it was in the country before we were born and it is our duty to ensure it continues by learning and using it together.
