2017 Indigenous Language Support (ILS) activities

In 2017, Muurrbay received support from ILS to revitalise languages by documenting, researching, archiving and publishing language materials, and teaching language, including:

Publishing: Gumbaynggirr Yuludarla: Dreaming Stories from the East Coast in Gumbaynggirr and English  was launched in February.

Electronic resources: Work in this field is ongoing from 2015, we are increasing community access to language materials via online resources: Bundjalung- Yugambeh electronic dictionary is being finalised. All text has been completed, language workers are now adding audio files and seeking community feedback.

Courses: The Certificate III in Gumbaynggirr Language and Culture Maintenance was accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) and is now being delivered on-site at Muurrbay.
