TALK: Friends of the UWA Library Speaker
|Friends of the UWA Library Speaker : Preserving Aboriginal Culture through Language
About the talk
In this paper Julian discusses the positive impact reclaiming language has for first people. He cites the growing understanding that Indigenous language is inseparable from culture - that language is integral in affirming and maintaining wellbeing, self-esteem and identity. The National Trust of Western Australia is contributing to the reclamation of Aboriginal languages in the Goldfields region through the establishment of the Goldfields Aboriginal Languages Centre in Kalgoorlie.
