A living archive that is breathing life back into thousands of Indigenous language books created decades ago was launched at Charles Darwin University (CDU) on 7 April.

The archive is an ARC-funded project which aims to preserve thousands of stories in more than 25 Indigenous languages as a resource for Indigenous communities, students, academics and the public to use and to contribute to. It was launched by Dr Tom Calma AO.

CDU Northern Institute Professor of Education and project leader Michael Christie, delivered a public lecture as part of the launch.

More information about the Living Archive of Aboriginal Languages is available from the CDU website.
