Recently in Jabiru we conducted a DRIL (Documenting and Revitalising Indigenous Languages Workshop) to help people keep speaking Gundjeihmi and Kunwinjku. Margaret Florey and Donna McLaren came and helping us run the workshop. They both work for RNLD (Resource Network for Linguistic Diversity). They showed us many techniques to help us teach Gundjeihmi to children and other people who want to learn the language.


That is all.
