The Injinoo Ikya Ancestral Language Action Team recorded a CD of Injinoo Ikya hymns in time for the Easter Service at St Michael’s Church at Bamaga.
The Project has created a lot of interest in the Injinoo Ikya speech community and amongst other language groups, who are now talking about recording their own songs and beginning their own ancestral language revival projects.
“Our CD has been played on the radio so everyone across NPA has heard our songs. Now the other language nations want to make CDs too, which is great. We are going to be pretty busy.” —Xavier Barker, Aurukun linguist
