Survey Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Language Initiative Program PDF Print E-mail

FATSIL, as the peak body for indigenous languages is continually updating data on language projects around Australia. Do we have up to the minute news of programs operating, completed or planned for future implementation in your area?

The information collated is vital for the preparation of submissions to funding bodies, for informed contact with national and international media, and to ensure that FATSIL delegates fully understand the needs of working groups within their regions. So please grab a coffee and complete the questionnaire below. You can fax, post or email the responses to us at the addresses over the page. Your help in this is greatly appreciated, and means that as a united body, FATSIL can continue to expand the services provided in relation to the preservation and support of indigenous languages in Australia.
