A story By Hannah Walmsley with Alex Sloan for the ABC.

Over the past few years Pintupi-Luritja people have been working to translate the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights into their languages.

Pintupi-Luritja is said to be the first language of about 2000 people in Central Australia, and the second language of many more people.

The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights is the world's most translated document, having been translated into more than 460 languages since it was first adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1948.


This is the first time it has been translated in to an Indigenous Australian language.
