General Language Information:

(From https://dieriyawarra.wordpress.com/dieri-language/)

The Dieri language was traditionally spoken in the far north of South Australia, to the east of Lake Eyre. Dieri country is traversed by the lower reaches of Cooper Creek — a mostly dry watercourse that runs from western Queensland, through Innamincka and into Lake Eyre. There are very few fluent speakers left although quite a few still use words and expressions and encouragingly since 2009 the language has started being taught in schools.
