Teaching Miriwoong Language Across Generations

Presenters: Dianne Dingle, Bryan Gallagher, Elise Kennedy, Henry Leslie-O'Neill

After our 30+ anniversary at the MDWg language centre, we are still working hard to pass Miriwoong language and culture ­­­on to the next generations. We teach Miriwoong to kids every day at school and to our own kids at home, we design learning materials and e-books, we record elders and listen to recordings in the archive, and much more. We learnt language here when we were young, now it’s good to train up the next generation of language workers.
