On the 19th of October 2017, NSW became the first state in Australia to pass legislation
through its Parliament recognising the importance of Aboriginal languages.
The legislation acknowledges that Aboriginal languages underpin Aboriginal identity and the
revival and teaching of languages must accord with local community aspirations. It focuses
on the NSW Government working in partnership with Aboriginal communities to support the
revival of Aboriginal languages and raise awareness amongst the broader NSW population.
