Intriguing Aspects and Preservation of the Yanyuwan Aboriginal Language in Australia

This video by Dr. John Bradley and Dr. Amanda Kearney from the Centre for Aboriginal Indigenous Studies at Monash University explore the intriguing aspects of the Yanyuwan language and community. One aspect is how language plays a important part of the Yanyuwan culture. The video also discusses how animated technology is being  used to communicate important values of the Yanyuwan culture. I found the idea of associating drawing with sorcery very interesting.
