Some of you would have become aware of a project in Perth Western Australia
that has been ongoing since 2014. The ultimate aim is have nys.wikipedia.org
currently its at https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/nys with 500
articles

While everyone has been focused on enjoying the holiday break the people
facilitating this project have been busily writing a report on the project
and it was publish last night.

It looks at working with an Indigenous cultural/language group in the
southwest of Western Australia, the first chapter covers this detail.

The project has been working on a number of very specific challenges facing
minority and Indigenous cultures in contributing to the projects. It
discusses what worked how that evolved, we investigated intangible
knowledge sources and even challenged the methods of collecting the
statistics behind the conclusion that Noongar language is a threatened
language.

The project has worked with multiple generations of Nyoongar people in
differing environments, its worked with students  from the early years of
primary school 6,7 8 years old through to post graduate students.

Wikimedia Australia is currently organising opportunities to discuss with
facilitators of the project, the first event is in Darwin in March and
later in Perth during October.  As always if you find yourself in Perth let
me know we are always ready to have yarn. In the mean time enjoy reading
about Noongarpedia and we hope it offers insights
