National Talkblack 280223

We had:

Paul Paton, CEO of the Federation of Victorian Traditional Owner Corporations, talking about how Australian Indigenous languages represent 9% of the world’s critically endangered languages. For centuries, language has been used to form communities, create social cohesion and to mark outsiders. For Aboriginal people it has marked us as outsiders on our own Country and its removal has been used as a way to colonize us.

Philipp Kastner, University of Western Australia senior law lecturer talking about the senate inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women, children hears calls for action. For most people, the idea of a loved one vanishing or being murdered is beyond comprehension, but it is a scenario that is all too familiar for many First Nations communities.

Have something happening in your community, and you want to talk about it, give us a call on 1800 422 416. Or Give us a text on 0457 140 550!

We would also like to thank the Community Broadcasting Foundation and National Indigenous Australians Agency for their support here at BBM 98.7FM.
