Back in 2016, Ruth saw an opportunity to bring Wiradjuri language to our local community through Aboriginal Affairs NSW "Our language, Our way" grants.


Giilangyaldhaanygalang was formed between Ruth Davys and Dr Pettina Love.

The Yali Wiradjuri (lets talk Wiradjuri) project, hosted by Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service saw up to 30 people come together each week for an intro to Wiradjuri language.

Along with the free Yali Wiradjuri language resources being available on YouTube (check out wiradjuri puppets), this is where we saw Galing, Wiradjuri water, launched with the love of our family, friends, supporters and allies. Then came other language resources - lanyards for yinaabu gibirbu (men and women) and now there are t-shirts, stickers and posters too. (All available on the website shop)

Our cousin puppets, Ruthie and Petal, came to town around 2018/2019 so we took 'em for a Wiradjuri road trip to meet mayiny (people) before filming the Who? What? Where? Season 1 & 2 (Pre and post covid, also up on you tube).

Wow, what a time we've had!!!

Pet and I have had a blast over the last few years but change is inevitable.

In 2021, Pettina Love (and Petal) entered the world of retirement and I became the sole Vision keeper of Giilangyaldhaanygalang, (others might use the word Director).

Pet has continued with her creative pursuits over the last two years and I've received heaps of photos and updates on what she's up to. The latest sees her joining the team at Dedicated Maniac Productions, with daughter Jess, forming the Love & Love team. 

And Pettina still follows me and Ruthie. We've kept her updated with our local market stalls, visiting schools, groups and organisations, Wiradjuri Culture and Language workshops, being out on Country building community connection and now also doing guided tours along the Yindyamarra Sculpture Trail.
