Miromaa Language Centre is a not-for-profit organisation supporting language documentation and conservation programs nationally and internationally.
We are the developers of the internationally recognised and highly acclaimed Miromaa language technology program which is used for the documentation, conservation and dissemination of our traditional languages. The Miromaa Program has been obtained for use in over 150 plus languages all over Australia and many more internationally.
As well as the continual development of the Miromaa Program, we also administrate two major national language initiatives; coordinating and hosting the Puliima National Indigenous Language and Technology Forum every two years and also creating and managing the Our Languages Website.
Language is the expression of our culture and our land. We cannot have one without the other. We cannot describe our culture and our land if we do not have language.
