Yankunytjatjara speakers live in the north-west of South Australia. Prior to their displacement by Pitjantjatjara speakers, in about 1917, Yankunytjatjara communities inhabited the “Musgrave Ranges east of Oparinna, on Officer Creek; north to near Mount Robert, east to Everard Ranges, south to latitude 28°30” (see Tindale 1974, page 212).
Today, major Yankunytjatjara centres include Indulkana and Mimili.

The purposes of this project, funded by DEWHA’s Maintenance of Indigenous Languages and Records (MILR) program and Cultural Strategic Initiatives fund, are to produce a book in the highly endangered Antikirinya variety of the Yankunytjatjara language, to record Elder Bobby Brown talking in Antikirinya about early contact, history, significant events and local traditions of the Coober Pedy area, to include translations and explanations by Bobby Brown in Aboriginal English (station English), so that Indigenous perspectives of the region are available in both local vernaculars as valid mediums of documentation, and to transcribe and edit the material for publication and add an annotated list of relevant readings and an editor's introduction.
