"The year I turned five years old I was taken away from my mother...Nobody ever spoke their language in school. That's how I lost my language. It was one of my dreams to learn to speak my language again...I love the Language Centre. I am proud to have been the chairperson for this many years."
Bonnie Deegan [KLRC Chairperson 1992-2001] (quoted in State of Indigenous languages in Australia McConvell and Thieberger, 2001, p88). Bonnie is a member of the Stolen Generation who relearned her language of Jaru after returning to Halls Creek from the Beagle Bay Mission.
"Among Aboriginal people, to know my world is to speak my language...I didn't speak English until I went to school. By learning the English language I learned how to deal with the non-Aboriginal world. Now that we can both speak the same language, we would like to ask you to sit down with us, so that we can start talking and listening to one another"
Ivan Kurijinpe McPhee (deceased) quoted in The Kimberley:
Our Place: Our Future KLC 1998,
