Radio in aboriginal language

Aboriginal languages are the indigenous languages spoken by the First Nations peoples of Canada, as well as the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of Australia. Many contemporary musical artists have begun incorporating Aboriginal languages into their music, helping to preserve and promote these important languages. Some popular musical artists using Aboriginal languages include Archie Roach, Gurrumul, and Baker Boy.

In terms of radio stations, there are several stations in Canada and Australia that broadcast in Aboriginal languages. In Canada, the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network operates a radio network called Voices Radio, which broadcasts in several Indigenous languages including Cree, Ojibwe, and Inuktitut. In Australia, the National Indigenous Radio Service (NIRS) provides programming in over 100 Aboriginal languages, and has affiliate stations throughout the country. Other notable radio stations broadcasting in Aboriginal languages include CAAMA Radio in Central Australia and 98.9FM in Brisbane. These stations provide a vital platform for the promotion and preservation of Aboriginal languages and cultures.
