Kaya, Wandjool Nidja Noongar Boodja Noonook: Welcome! This is Noongar country you are seeing – Noongar Language talk by Denise Smith-Ali

2019 is the UNESCO International Year of Indigenous Languages. Noongar is a language spoken across the south west of Western Australia – the Noongar nation. Fluent Noongar speakers dwindled as colonisation took over, but more recently Noongar language is being revived through language courses. In this talk you will hear Denise Smith-Ali talk about the work she and the Noongar Boodjar Language Cultural Aboriginal Corporation have been doing to preserve revive and promote the Noongar language.

Free event. Bookings required.
