The longest river in Tasmania has 3 Aboriginal place names - This Place

Our Culture

Added by First Languages Australia

Description 'This Place' is a partnership between the ABC and First Languages Australia inviting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to create a short video about a place name, and the story behind it. Share with ICTV with support from the Community Benefit Fund.

Patsy Cameron shares the importance of Indigenous place names and dual naming.

"Sharing Indigenous place names honours the ancestors and acknowledges the beautiful language, and the significant part of language that tells the story of country. However we need to do it together so we can all feel confident and we all feel a part of it".
