Ngukurr Language Centre

0

Ngukurr Language Centre2Ngukurr is a large Aboriginal community in southern Arnhem Land, situated on Ngalakgan land. Formerly a mission, the community population covers 8-10 heritage languages that are all now endangered. The main language spoken in Ngukurr today is Kriol but within the community, traditional languages are held in high esteem.

The Ngukurr Language Centre is a small, independent, non-profit organisation. The goal of the Ngukurr Language Centre is to revitalise, document, teach and promote the traditional Ngukurr Language Centre3languages of the community via a range of community-based language programs.

The Ngukurr Language Centre is overseen by an Indigenous board of directors, elected from a membership base of local language workers, language speakers and educators.
