Welcome to the Eastern States Indigenous Language Working Goup website, Nambur Yaalam Wiyeliko.

This site has been started to share information between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Language programs in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

While our focus is on sharing news between, and promoting, Language programs and work in the Eastern States we are also keen to hear of relevant news from our other states and overseas. We'd love to hear your news so please use the links on the blogsite to make your own contribution and keep us all informed of the wonderful work you are doing.

The title, Nambur Yaalam Wiyeliko means “speak” from three places on the east of the country.  Nambur is the word from the Victorian Gunnai language, Yaalam from Butchulla in Queensland, and Wiyeliko from Awabakal in New South Wales.

So lets get talking...

P.S. Our banner photo was taken by Lynnette Nixon from the Nalingu Language Centre in Mitchell, Queensland. Thanks Lynnette!
