What is the project?
Its a project that focuses on populating Wikipedia entries into a number of broad knowledge domains.

The Noongarpedia sessions provide:
 
• Training and support in Wikipedia use,
• Language development,
• Interaction with Noongar knowledge and networks,
• Encourage wider community to create and contribute to noongar knowledge and;
• Interaction with Noongar academics at Curtin University and the University of Western Australia.

The categories for population may include: 
* Country – places, landscapes, flora, fauna; tribal groups and trading patterns;
* Narrative – stories from everyday life, including suburban domestic, urban industrial and regional traditions; literature and other art-forms;
* Music – including lyrics, traditional and modern;
* Popular culture – broadly defined, including ‘Gen Next’ and emergent knowledge;
* Citizenship – public knowledge and exchange, from ‘welcome to country’ to international first-peoples forums.
Knowledge sources may come from archives, family, media and public institutions, as well as schools, government departments and workplaces. In addition to materials collected by volunteers the project may rely on existing databases in various stages of evolution.

The benefits:
Provides an opportunity to help restore and continue Australian Aboriginal (Noongar) language and;
Enhances collaboration and sharing of Indigenous (Noongar) language internally, externally and internationally.
The Noongarpedia Project is an Australian Research Council Discovery Project supported by UWA and Curtin University.
