Maintaining languages, maintaining identities: what bilingual education offers

Jo CAFFERY, Jane Simpson, Patrick Mcconvell

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Michael Walsh has devoted much energy to the support and maintenence of Indigenous languages in Australia. He has called attention to their perilous state and the need for effective action to halt their slide into oblivion. Beyond this kind of advocacy, based on evidence and reasoned argument, he has been involved with Indigenous people in a mighty effort to put the languages of New South Wales, already counted as lost by many, back on the map, back in use and back in schools.
