Australia has the highest rate of language extinction on the planet: that’s according to UNESCO who says language diversity is—like species diversity—rapidly declining. And once a language is gone, can it really be brought back to life?

Holding our tongues is an ABC Hindsight project about the long and painful task of reviving Aboriginal languages.

There are many different places on the net where people can find out about language revival and maintenance. The Holding our tongues site will be an ongoing project, aiming to bring as many of these resources as possible together in one place.

Check out the website to find out more.
