Tyerrtye Atyinhe (My Body)

Young Way

Added by Children's Ground

Description Put your hands together and sing along to our remix of the nursery rhyme “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”! Tyerrtye Atyinhe teaches children the different parts of their body in Arrernte language through an upbeat call-and-response dance tune.

Kids learn to name their bodies in their own language, strengthening a sense of ownership and pride in themselves and their First Nations identity.

“We want our little ones to see themselves reflected while they learn, so we have taken an old song and created our own version. "Carol Turner, Arrernte songwriter and educator"
