Learning traditional language is an important key for Indigenous people in unlocking culture. When we teach our kids culture in school it's very important to learn the language of the land as well, so all of it comes together. When I was growing up we basically learnt about Captain Cook landing and that was basically it. We learnt what a didjeridu was and what a boomerang was and that was it, so I feel quite proud to go out and share my culture as well as the local language of this land with the kids of today. http://www.abc.net.au/local/audio/2013/07/03/3795107.htm http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2013/03/27/3724923.htm https://open.abc.net.au/explore/84871
