It's a passion for wanting more people to talk it. I want to see a day where we go to work and we're talking in language. Where you work in an indigenous organisation you should be talking in your first language rather than English. It's a part of me. To hear it, to speak it, to have it spoken. It's almost part of my DNA to have the culture, the tradition, the language all happening. What I'd like to see in my language in five years time: I would like to be to a point where we greeted each other in language, said goodbye in language and parts of the conversation were in language. I do believe that's 'achievable. I don't believe that we'll be to a point where we would speak more language than English, but we could certainly be a long way down that road.
