The Mirima Linguistic Forum is a new initiative by MDWg to bring together people with an academic interest in Indigenous studies. While our focus is on language and culture, ideally with a reference to local Indigenous matters, we welcome contributions on related topics. We leave plenty of time for discussions and presentations occur in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The forum is open to all; if you happen to be in the Kununurra area and would like to present on a topic of interest - please let us know: info at
