Research toward a National Indigenous Languages Policy

Have your say!

John Prior (Electorate Officer for Senator Trish Crossin) is researching a
National Indigenous Languages Policy for Minister Garrett’s office. He
welcomes comment as well as pointers to resources and references. He is
unsure of the timeframe of this stage of development, so I would suggest
contacting him as soon as you are able:
