Subject: New play addresses indigenous language issues

Dear RNLDers,

A new play by the Yirra Yakin Aboriginal Corporation opens in Perth next week. Mother's Tongue <>  is a contemporary Indigenous story about David and Ngala, a brother and sister trying to find their way in life after the death of their grandmother, the keeper of secrets and last custodian of the knowledge of a whole language group. After her death, David is the only person left alive that can speak his mother's tongue.

Mother's Tongue will play from 29 October - 20 November 2010 at YY Theatre Space, 65 Murray Street, Perth.

kind regards,
Resource Network for Linguistic Diversity <>
