Language contacts in Queensland
There are several language centres currently operating in Queensland. The role of Indigenous Language Centres is to support the revival and maintenance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages in their region. Language activities may include language research, exhibitions and community training as well as the recording and / or documentation of Indigenous languages.
Other groups such as Land Councils, Cultural Organisations, Elders' Groups, Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKCs), community groups, etc. may also be undertaking language revival activities.
