Interest in the Voice of the Land continues to grow, with requests for inclusion on the mailing list coming this month from a number of schools and universities, community language groups as well as private individuals.

Also our Internet page Language of the Month caught its share of attention with over 500 calls to the site being registered since it was opened.

This month's article (pages 4 & 5) features the Wangkatha language of the Kalgoorlie area.

Next issue there'll be news from the New South Wales Aboriginal Elders Indigenous Language Summit.

This looks like being a great forum for the airing of all matters relating to language, as it will be bringing together not only Elders and community members, but representatives from various State and Federal Government bodies, local Aboriginal Land Councils and Corporations and community leaders.

And it's probably time that you got in touch and gave us news from your little part of Australia. If you have a story or a photo that you'd like featured in the newsletter, give me a call on 07 38070885 or send a fax to 07 38078922.
