This session will describe the bond between Jews and Aboriginal people. For example: Ngarigu linguist Dr Troy and native Revived Hebrew speaker Professor Zuckermann will explore perspicacious insights applicable from the Promised Land to the Lucky, albeit linguistically Unlucky, Country. Dr Troy will share her views on Israel, following a trip sponsored by the Yachad Foundation, in which Prof. Zuckermann introduced her to the Hebrew revival. Prof. Zuckermann will propose the establishment of 'Native Tongue Title' - to compensate Aboriginal people for linguicide.
