New wiki on Australian Indigenous languages
by Jane Simpson
5 October, 2007

A new wiki has been set up: Sharing Aboriginal language. Longterm it's
for general discussion "for all Aboriginal language people to work
together, share ideas, develop exchanges programmes, discuss language
matters and be able to contact each other quickly".

But most immediately the current discussion is on recommendations for
Australian government policy on Indigenous Languages (you can find
information on the main Australian language policy resources up to
late June at David Nash's site). The recommendations arise from the
successful Indigenous Languages Conference held last month at the
University of Adelaide (See Matjjin-nehen, Anggarrgoon and Langguj gel
for discussion of ideas arising in the conference.)
