Our Work

Documentation, revitalisation and maintenance of the Miriwoong language and culture are the main objectives of MDWg.

The work of MDWg is kindly supported by the Australian Government. We would like to acknowledge the contributions through the ILS Program (Indigenous Language Support). The Ministry of the Arts currently supports the operations of MDWg, grammar research and Indigenous employment initiatives.

We would also like to acknowledge the support from the Department of Social Services, the Federal Government’s Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) and Save the Children (SCA)/Communities for Children (CfC) for their incredible support of the Miriwoong Language Nest. Our sincere gratitude is also extended to AusCouncil for assisting with the publication of our 2 latest bilingual books and to Optus for including the innovative ‘sound printing’ technology in these books and for contributing to the training & development of our smartphone app.

MDWg also wishes to acknowledge the invaluable support of the various members of our Saving Miriwoong Donor & Sponsorship Program. These supporters enable us to continuously expand our efforts to save the traditional language of our country.
