Debbie talks about Indigenous languages (1:42)

And often it’s helpful if there’s another lady there, like just for instance I’ve just been teaching one of the ladies that’s been here for quite a while how to make a bag – it’s a new design.  She’s been familiar with the zippy bags and makes them beautifully, but it’s just a new design.  So I thought, “I’ll sit down with her and just step by step”.  And I had my bag, she had hers.  And one of our other ladies who is very proficient in this particular bag was able to help me when I wasn’t actually getting my point across in English, and also trying to demonstrate at the same time, Elizabeth was actually able to talk to this lady in language, and the penny dropped.  And it was great to have that sort of support there that from Elizabeth, and yeah, it was great for Linda too, because she was struggling a little bit and she was getting a little bit flustered.  And I’m thinking, “What other English words could I use?”  And I’m trying to explain it with my bag and we just – and it was – that was great.  And I think that is just so important that they have somebody there not just who can – is prepared to actually take their time and go through it slowly, but somebody who actually can speak their language as well.  That’s just a – it just can be the way in which something – the message can be got across a lot quicker and it doesn’t make them feel silly.  You know, it’s like, “Okay, I understand this in my language and it makes sense”.
