04 May My Grandmother’s Lingo
Rick’s Picks is a series of posts highlighting the very best content online.
An amazing site that tells a story in the most interactive way!
The online interactive animation My Grandmother’s Lingo tells the personal story of Angelina Joshua, a young Aboriginal woman dedicated to preserving her endangered Indigenous culture through language.
This innovative online documentary combines voice-activated gaming technology with unique animations to unlock the chapters in Angelina’s story, and simultaneously raise awareness of Australia’s most important Indigenous issues – language – specifically Marra, a language now spoken by only three people in the remote East Arnhem Land community of Ngukurr where Angelina lives.”
