Spread the Word: Tyawi-tyawithirnda
Tyawi-tyawithirnda
Season 1  |  Episode 7  |  Disney Channel  |  October 19, 2019

You're waiting in a long line. You're annoyed and bored, and you just had enough. Familiar? For sure. Do you have a word for that? Probably not. But the South Australian Arabana community does! Tyawi-tyawithirnda: A bit long, but not as much as the line for the toilet is in this episode!
Suggested Classroom Activities: Turn and talk: Can you think of time when you have felt a bit boxed in, bored and wanted to escape? Geography: Find South Australia on a map of Australia. Art and design: Draw or paint a long line of people waiting for something. Then write the word Tyawi-tyawithirnda above their heads. Describe your artwork to a friend. What are the people lining up for?
