The Adnyamathanha people are from the northern Flinders Ranges. Their name means 'Rock People or Language'.

There are only around 20 fluent speakers of this language, but community language revival efforts are well underway both in the traditional Adnyamathanha lands and also with Adnyamathanha people living in Adelaide.
