Language and Me - Ep3: Legacy

Our Way

Added by First Languages Australia

Description Theresa Sainty, Pakana woman and Aboriginal Linguistic Consultant for the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre.

Theresa spoke about language, connection, her mission to honour the legacy of the old people, and the importance of reviving place names like kunanyi which “has always been in country and it always will be in country, it will always be kunanyi”

This year… 2022… marks the start of the UNESCO International Decade of Indigenous Languages… which aims to build a global community for the preservation, revitalization and support of Indigenous languages. To start the conversation here First Languages Australia has asked Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language speakers what language means to them.
