First Languages, Education and Reconciliation

About This Webinar

To mark the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages (and the prospective 2022‑2032 International Decade of Indigenous Languages), this webinar provides an introduction to the context and continued significance of First Languages in Australia, and explores the important interrelationship between First Languages revitalisation and reconciliation. Guest webinar co-host, Gunai author, poet and educator, Kirli Saunders, also joins Narragunnawali's Stephanie Woerde to share practical insights and inspiration from Red Room Poetry’s Poetry in First Languages initiative, which supports students in creating poetry in First Languages by connecting them to First Nations poets, Elders and Language Custodians on Country.
