#548 Bla Mela Stori – Language Man

This week we’re sharing another yarn from Bla Mela Stori from Grant Thompson. Grant works at the Ngukurr Language Centre to save his endangered Indigenous language – Ngandi.

Language Man

In this story Grant explains why it’s so important to keep language strong and how he went about revitalising Ngandi.

This story was produced by Angelina Joshua.

It was made as part of the Bla Mela Stori project, a program by Katherine Regional Arts in the Northern Territories.

Stories in this program were produced with the support of the Australian Federal Government’s Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand Fund (RISE).
