Yaama. We are writing to let you know that we are learning Gamilaraay, the language of our tribe. Our language hasn't been spoken for a long time from when white men came up here and put us on missions.

There are two places learning our language, Boggabilla and Toomelah. All kids from kindy to year 8 have lessons. It's going into TAFE soon too. The reason we are learning it is because we feel it is very important to us and our elders. It's good to be getting it back. It's fun to learn and we like it. We play lots of word games. Learning our language can help us understand how our ancestors thought about their world.

Thank you for the magazine. We would like to read about other young Aboriginal students learning their lingo.
