Our word of the week is Tuckum
According to Aboriginal words and names, Upper Clarence River dialect, collected by Thomas George Hewitt, ca. 1909; with introduction, notes and index by Robert L. Dawson, 1936 tuckum means “mountain view”.
It is important to note that these records were written in most cases about Aboriginal languages by non - Aboriginal people. For this reason, the written words may not accurately reflect the ways in which an oral language was spoken and transmitted.
