Noongar Cultural and Language Classes

The classes are led by Marie Taylor, a traditional owner and elder of Noongar Country.

Marie has a wealth of knowledge and is an emotive storyteller who brings the language of the Noongar people to life in these workshops. The classes are designed to suit everyone - from absolute beginners to people looking for an opportunity to practice and polish their Noongar language skills.

Anyone with a passion for languages, expanding their knowledge or connecting with local culture is invited to join these classes. This is an opportunity to learn the language of the first people of south Western Australia. You are welcome to attend these classes on an adhoc basis or attend each session throughout the year.

The classes will run from 10.00am on the third Saturday of each month, alternating between the Cannington Library and Bentley Hub.
