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.

Researching the culture and language of place names of the Whadjuk Nyungar people has been a lifelong pursuit for Professor Len Collard. His knowledge of the ancient dialects provide a deeper meaning to the way of life and the relationship between land, place and the meanings behind places of Nyngar Boojar.
