A word doesn’t just represent a thing. It represents the sound that it makes, the place where it lives. It gives you so much more insight than just a simple name. And that is awesome. Our language defines who we are as people. It opens up that window of understanding and knowledge. It helps us to connect with our country and with one another as a people. I believe that the language comes from this land and as we begin to learn the language again and speak it again openly and freely we begin to connect back to out country again and feel strong and proud about that. It is quite important to learn the language of the people of where you are living. I think something that is missing in a lot of people’s lives is a sense of belonging, a sense of connection. I believe that it is through language and culture that we can achieve a close connection to the earth again.
