I bet you have probably not heard this language spoken before or seen it taught by people this tiny and cute?
This week is National NAIDOC week here is Australian and all around the country we are celebrating the achievements, history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
So we have teamed up with Jellyshots Media to bring to you some of the youngest generation (my kids) sharing some of their knowledge with you to help educate other Australians when it comes to their native culture and language.
Because, if you’re like me (that was until I met my husband) than you probably don’t know much about Torres Strait Islanders and their culture at all… BUT now you will.
Don’t forget to like, comment, and SHARE this video in the spirit of NAIDOC week, to help keep the knowledge of this and the many other beautiful languages and cultures of our nations first people alive and in the forefront of our minds.
Please, be sure to join in and take part of your local NAIDOC celebrations this week and pay respect to our nations first people, past and present.
