Nganga – To See and Understand

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 10 August 2019
Author / Presenters: David Astle, Aunty Fay Muir, Sue Lawson

Through the words of Australia's indigenous languages we have gradually been introduced to a culture that was disregarded by most of settler Australia. Now, through projects such as the Nganga dictionary of words and phrases, important ideas have reached many people, giving access to so much that was previously ignored. David Astle talks with Aunty Fay Muir and Sue Lawson about language, its importance to culture, their work to collect words to help people understand culture, and the reception of their first book of Nganga
