“The Puliima National Indigenous Language and Technology Forum took place in Melbourne this month. The event attracted over 230 people from nations across Australia as well as international guests. Energy and enthusiasm filed the William Angliss Institute as participants exchanged ideas and shared passion for language and culture.”

This app was produced as part of an intensive two day workshop at the Puliima National Indigenous Language & Technology conference in Melbourne, Australia.

Featuring languages from across Australia, this app is a collaboration between the Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages (VACL), Kiwa Digital and a diverse group of Australian indigenous people.

The app includes the narration, text, and user interface in these indigenous languages: Bundjalung, Dharug, Gathang, Ngarrindjeri and Wonnarua.

It demonstrates the SLAM language revitalisation program and how interactive digital story telling can be used as an educational tool for language revival.
