Recognising and Protecting NSW Aboriginal Languages
In this section, you will find information on the proposed legislation to recognise and protect NSW Aboriginal Languages. NSW will be the first

The proposed legislation was announced on 16 November 2016. Full details including copies of the draft Aboriginal Languages Bill and Strategic
