Welcome

TO THE GOLDFIELDS ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE CENTRE Aboriginal Corporation's (GALCAC) WEBSITE!

This is the website for the Goldfields Aboriginal Languages Centre Aboriginal Corporation.

The Language Centre began as a project in 2011 and developed into a language centre in 2016.

The Language Centre’s role is to work alongside speakers to record, linguistically analyses and database the Aboriginal languages of the Goldfields, WA, region in order to create preservation and use documents such as lexical databases, dictionaries and grammars.

 This work is done in partnership with, and under direction from, each language group of the Goldfields.

The Language Centre also creates teaching and learning resources in order for people to enjoy their languages and teach children language speaking, reading and writing skills.

You’ll find lots of information about the languages of our region and the Language Centre on this website but if you would like more, drop us an email via the contact form!
