NAIDOC Week 2017 – Our Languages Matter: Spotlight Information and Resources

11 June 2017

This year to celebrate NAIDOC week 2017 – Our Languages Matter the staff at Queensland Council of Social Service (QCOSS) researched the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages of Queensland – those still being used and those that have been lost. This was done to get a better understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as this nation’s first people.

QCOSS have shared their research by saying hello, good day and welcome in the many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages of Queensland in a recording.

QCOSS acknowledges that they have not been able to cover them all and may not have perfect pronunciation but please take this in the manner in which it is offered as an exploration and a way to get closer to understanding the first languages of Queensland.

For further information, visit the QCOSS website.
