This article was published in January 2011, I have found it on the Indian Country Today Media Network but Im sure it would have been published in other locations.
Quoting Australian linguist Michael Christie “The use of Aboriginal language in schools brings Aboriginal parents and grandparents into the school and so brings the community and the school together.” The article concludes with “Christie believes that indigenous languages in Australia need a boost. According to BigPond, he wants more Australians to consider learning Aboriginal languages as they celebrate Australia Day this year.”
