Professor Buckskin talks about the importance of maintaining and reviving Aboriginal languages and about how language is a strong part of identity and culture. He comments on the impact of the proposed Federal Government Budget on Aboriginal programs and services and on organisations that work to maintain and revive ‘sleeping’ languages.
