Together with language centres and programs around the country First Languages Australia has developed a set of guidelines for those who are setting out to create resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language projects.
Warra has been written to help families and communities with the work of maintaining and strengthening Australia’s traditional languages. It showcases a wide range of language resources, and guides users through the steps involved in making Australian first languages resources.
