Lynette Ackland: Recovering Indigenous Languages

Posted on: Mon 10 Jun 2019

Over 200 years after the arrival of the First Fleet, Lynette Ackland and her small team of Indigenous staff sit in an equally small office on the outskirts of the remote town of Ceduna, South Australia, working to ensure the very survival of Indigenous languages.  Service Voices had gone there searching for Indigenous WW2 Veterans, and came away saddened by what Lynette told us, but hopeful of new attitudes.

Lynette explains about the need to preserve Indigenous languages, and what they’re doing about it at the Far West Languages Centre in the lovely town of Ceduna, South Australia.
