Also spelled Nyoongar, Noongar
Word for Word #23 Noongar: The pulse of language – In Indigenous cultures, traditional languages are bound up with family, history and place. In this episode, we meet three Noongar people – Miles Franklin-winning novelist Kim Scott; music historian Clint Bracknell; and performer and director Kylie Bracknell – to ask how an ancient, endangered language can live and thrive today.
The Noongar language is spoken by the Indigenous people of Perth and WA’s south-west, but it's long been under threat.
A version of Shakespeare's Macbeth entirely rewritten in the Noongar language will debut at the Perth Festival next month.https://t.co/Cabn9qDwFb
