Jaky Troy on Conversations with Richard Fidler, 2 November 2015

Date: 2 November 2015

ABC Local:

Jaky is a Ngarigu woman whose country is the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales.

As a little girl, Jaky had no idea her people originally had a language of their own.

When her family spent time in Arnhem Land, she was amazed to hear all the different languages spoken there.

Jaky's fascination with Indigenous languages was enhanced by her time spent in Mexico, and Japan.
