Increasingly, Indigenous people are emerging from within
communities and are researching and teaching their languages
and acting as a ‘connector’ between the linguist and the
community. These people have a very important role to play

collaborators in language work, there is nothing more important
and powerful than Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
working on their own languages.
