The Noongar language

 

The Noongar language is an endangered Australian Aboriginal language in the South-West of Western Australia. In this video Kylie Farmer tells stories and Shakespearian sonnets in the Noongar language, teaches some of its basic vocabulary, and also discusses the importance of the revitalization of not only Noongar language but all Australian Aboriginal languages. She talks about the various projects she has participated in that have contributed to the maintenance of the Noongar language and some of the social pressures that the Nyungar nation face in the task of preservation.
