From the Warriparinga language course in early 2007, Amery recruited Jamie Goldsmith to work on a Kaurna requests database and Jack Buckskin to work on the Kaurna Placenames project.
At the end of September 2007 Amery travelled interstate and asked Buckskin to teach the class in his absence.
Amery suggested that it would be worth approaching Buckskin as a possible teacher of Kaurna.
We have gone into some detail here to show how Buckskin was 'fast-tracked' into the teaching of Kaurna, first through being given responsibility for a limited introductory 11-week program with Year 8 students (which was taught repetitively in a rotation of all Year 8 classes), while at the same time having ongoing support from Amery through the joint delivery of the adult evening (Year 11) class.
Buckskin was soon recruited by other schools, beginning with Kaurna Plains School later in 2008.
For Buckskin, before starting to learn Kaurna language, members of his own family were telling him that he should not have to learn language from a non-Aboriginal person, but he continued to do so to show them that it takes just one person to break that cycle.
When the Ramindjeri proponents saw an article in the Advertiser (Simos 2010) reporting on the Kaurna program at Adelaide High School, they contacted the teacher, a young non-Aboriginal woman promoted by Buckskin and endorsed by KWP, and challenged her right to teach Kaurna.
Rather than having to check with Amery or KWP, who sometimes had to guess themselves, Buckskin pushed for a phonemic spelling system, where, on the basis of thorough research, a reasoned decision was made as to how a word was to be spelled, and then the pronunciation would be self-evident.
Buckskin and the students at Kaurna Plains School are working on a Kaurna games book and a new song book with songs appealing to teenagers, such as rap and hip hop, as explained below.
In 2009 Buckskin was also contracted by Le Fevre High School to work alongside David Wilson, a Barngarla/Narungga/Kaurna man, to assist with a combined Kaurna language and media program.
Needless to say, Buckskin is the central figure in these radio shows.
This reinforced the edges (real buckskin would not have been folded at the edges).
