Butchulla

Hearing the Butchella language is amazing because my nan’s aunts and uncles used to speak it fluently. Nan never had time for it. When her aunts and uncles used to come and speak to her they used to say to Nan’s mum ‘Why doesn’t she know the language?’. Now Nan knows she should have sat there and listened and learnt, and she thinks it’s great that us young ones are learning and teaching it.
