At the time of European colonisation there were hundreds of different traditional Aboriginal languages and several geographically defined Torres Strait Islander languages spoken in Australia.
Historically, clan groups could speak not only their own language but also the language belonging to their neighbours. This was very important when trade and travel occurred across traditional language boundaries. Language helps us to understand and identify the many Indigenous groups in Australia.
While some languages are still spoken each day some are not, they have been lost or are only ever recollected by elders. Even though English is widely used, many groups are still actively researching and reviving their traditional languages and are teaching them to their younger generations. The North Queensland Regional Aboriginal Corporation Language Centre in Cairns conducts workshops to train community members to use technology to document various languages and record speakers.
There are many regional, state and national conferences held that focus on language education, survival, research, recording and teaching indigenous languages through the school curriculum.Your print will arrive securely packaged.
