DIY Bilingual Books wishes to thank Aunty Fay Stewart-Muir, respected elder of the Boon wurrung peoples, custodians and protectors of the ‘Great Two Bays”, for her guidance, time and support of this DIY Translation Project. Aunty Fay has inspired this project along its path and has provided the very first Aboriginal translation of the Whose Animals? Australia book, in Boon wurrung language for free use amongst the community.
We respectfully acknowledge the traditional owners of our land and pay our respects to the elders past, present and future. We believe that our diverse languages are the voices of those who have gone before us, our ancestors whom we respect and acknowledge as the guides to our wisdom and to the secrets of our country.
Language gives us our voice to speak and share who we are, what we believe and what we value. Language communicates understanding and knowledge and helps join us all as one people.
All translations of this book are provided on this site for free community use. Other new translations are welcome. Any Elders wishing to discuss making further language translations for this project, please make contact through the Contact page above.
