    This project draws together groups engaged in Indigenous language study and reclamation in Victoria who have identified a critical need for accessible language resources. The project aims to: 1. create an online resource to centralise linguistic resources related to the Indigenous languages of Victoria (using four exemplar languages), 2. conduct primary linguistic research to add to the academic knowledge base of Indigenous languages of Victoria for the four exemplar languages, and 3. provide contemporary online technology and services for linguists, educators and the Indigenous community to conduct language research, present new research and engage in language revival and reclamation.
