Aboriginal culture has not been lost – just disrupted. Our ways of knowing,
being, doing, valuing and learning remain in an ancestral framework of
knowledge that is still strong. Through Indigenous research in western New
South Wales that explores these knowledge systems in land, language, people and the relationships among them, eight ways of learning have been identified.
This chapter makes recommendations for using the eight ways in the teaching of
Aboriginal languages in schools.
