General Language Information:

This language is spoken as a first language by 1,600 people and approximately 600 people as a second language in the Papunya, Kintore region of the Northern Territory (240km north west of Alice Springs) stretching over to Kiwirrkura in Western Australia.The term Luritja is believed to come from the Arrernte word lurinya meaning ‘foreigner’, which may have developed when the Luritja left their traditional lands in Western Australia and moved east into Arrernte land.
