Kua Swan

Kua Swan, Library Officer, special collections – University of Newcastle Kua Swan is a proud Gomeroi (Moree) & the Wiradjuri (Cowra) man but was born on Anaiwan land (Armidale). I am living & working on Awabakal country, Kua has been fortunate to experience Language from an extensive number of Aboriginal Language groups from across Australia and has been able to identify words from his travels. 

Kua began his journey at the University of Newcastle working within the Wollotuka Institute as a Project Officer focusing on the Indigenous Language program, which has since given him an in-depth understanding and appreciation of Language history. Kua’s work has allowed him to research Language with the help of Archival collections, this has led him to the university library.
