Bunuba in Melbourne

A round of applause for Patsy Bedford and June Oscar, who will be teaching Bunuba at Wesley College in Melbourne (Australian article here). What a fantastic opportunity for the kids! Patsy is the lynchpin of the Fitzroy Crossing annexe of the Kimberley Language Resource Centre, and June is the Chair of the KLRC.

This article is atypical in several ways. One is that it mentions an Aboriginal group (and language) by name. It’s also quite a bit more positive than your average language article (although it’s a pity about the title).
