Aidan Wilson from Fullysic blog wrote this article for the ABCs The Drum. In it he discusses the passing of his Grandmother, one of the few remaining fluent speakers of Tradational Tiwi and the wider implications of language loss for all of humanity. Related to this is the false dichotomy that English and Indigenous languages are mutually exclusive, a dichotomy apparent in the NT Government’s bilingual education policy.

Just a mild warning, I made it through about 1/3 of the comments on the article before I gave up. Too emotionally loaded for me today.
