Discover the revival of Aboriginal languages and its importance for building knowledge and identity.

For Victoria’s Aboriginal people, language is important for building knowledge, identity and connection to their ancestors.

Discover the revival of languages and how it is being used in the First Peoples exhibition, a new major exhibition at Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum. 

The First Peoples exhibition is a shared endeavour of Museum Victoria and the Victorian Aboriginal community. The First Peoples Yulendj Group of Elders and community representatives have brought their knowledge, stories, culture, objects and images to guide the exhibition's development.

This talk is presented together with Museum Victoria experts and the Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages.

Following the talk is a viewing of the exhibition.

Proudly presented by Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre and the Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages.
