Artwyenhenge is a cross-cultural educational resource developed and written by Arrernte Educators to combine Arrernte language learning around family and relationships with English numeracy. This book merges both First Nations values and world view with Western numeracy learning. Pre-colonisation, there was no need in the thriving and highly functional Arrernte societies to develop any numbers beyond three, other than arrunthe meaning 'many'.This resource therefore only includes Arrernte translations for numbers 1, 2 and 3.
