Living Languages – NRW Discussion Panel – Anglican Church Southern Queensland
May 30 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm AEST
Languages are the breath of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, making it vital to raise awareness of the importance of Indigenous languages across the country.
For Aboriginal and Torres Strait peoples, languages are not just a means of communication, they express knowledge about everything: law, geography, history, family and human relationships, philosophy, religion, anatomy, childcare, health, caring for country, astronomy, biology and food.
Through our guest speakers Aunty Dr McRose Elu, Yargarabul Nation Elder Gaja Kerry Charlton and Industry Fellow (Indigenous Languages) with the School of Languages and Culture at the University of Queensland Language Lecturer, Des Crump, you will hear why language is so important to First Nation Peoples.
Language is associated with land and through our deep spiritual significance we maintain connection to our ancestors, land and lore.
