Our Languages Matter: NAIDOC Week 2017

Queensland Council of Social Service (QCOSS) has explored Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages as part of NAIDOC Week 2017's theme Our Languages Matter.

We have created a film featuring greetings in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages and we talk about the origins of each language.

The film also discusses the importance of languages and preserving them for generations to come.

Each year, NAIDOC Week celebrations highlight the rich and diverse culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the First Australians.

NAIDOC Week celebrations and community events are a great opportunity for all Queenslanders to come together and acknowledge the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders.

This year NAIDOC Week celebrations will be held from Sunday 2 July to Sunday 9 July 2017.

Watch the film now on StudioQ.
