web-logoThe North Queensland Regional Aboriginal Corporation Language Centre (NQRACLC) is set up to help facilitate workshops, lessons, publications, and revival of Aboriginal Languages in the regions that we cover. We assist by holding meetings with key people and elders within the tribe and clans, facilitating dialogue, planning and organising workshops and lessons.

NQRACLC is the focal point for all Aboriginal languages represented by the Traditional Language Groups within the North Queensland region. The loss of these precious languages is a direct affect of the implementation of government policies, which prohibited Aboriginal people from speaking their own languages. By the 1940’s, many Aboriginal parents were not passing on their traditional languages to their children. Of over a hundred different languages originally spoken in Queensland, only a handful are now spoken across generations today.
