COMMUNTITY & REMEMBRANCE
THE IMPORTANCE OF COUNTRY & PLACE
Language is extremely impotent to the Aboriginal peoples. Languages carry cultural
knowledge, so the loss of a language means the loss of cultural,of Aboriginal people's
connetions to their ancestores.
"The impotent thing about language and what it means is that language,contains the
essence of our ancestors,every word comes from place and identifies people and links to the land, country,the dreaming: they are all inherent in language,therefore it means the people,the land,the everything."Yolngu Elder Laurie Baymarrawangga
