GREAT NEWS: On the 9th of August 2009, the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, the Federal Government released a media statement and policy document on Indigenous Languages. The new National Indigenous Languages Policy is aimed at keeping Indigenous languages alive and supporting Indigenous Australians to connect with their language, culture and country.
We congratulate the NSW State Government and the NSW Department of Aboriginal Affairs in being the first State or Territory to adopt a State wide policy.
