ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE

Language is extremely important to the Aboriginal peoples. Language carry cultural

knowledge, so the loss of a language means the loss of culture, of Aboriginal people's

connections to their ancestors.

'The important thing about language and what it means is that language contains the

essence of our ancestors,every word comes 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, everything." yolnugu Elder Laurie Banymarrwangga

. Explain the importance of language to the aboriginal people in your own words


If we took the Aboriginal language they would feel like a nobody with no colur in your life so it is very inportant to them.

PLACE NAMES

The Aboriginal name for Shellharbour has been recorded as both Yerrowah

(meeting place), and wonwin, (place where there were big fish). The European name Shellharbour refers to the large quanitities of shells found in Aborginal

middens along the foreshore in the early to mid 19th

century. Due to the mining of shells in the mid 19th century

for the production of lime these vast middens no longer remain.

people in your own words.

language it would be dificult because we arn't part of

there culture.
