Yuwaalaraay/Gamilaraay Language Revival in Walgett.
Giacon, John
Education in Rural Australia, v9 n1 p69-71 1999
Traces the recent history of the teaching of Australian Aboriginal language in Walgett (New South Wales), and discusses the possible future of this important issue. Until recently, native Australian languages were frowned upon and were not used publicly. Through funding received for several programs beginning in 1996, there has been a dramatic increase in the teaching of the Yuwaalaraay and Gamilaraay languages. (CDS)
