- Words of wisdom from former N.T. Administrator Ted Egan.
A former Northern Territory Administrator who spent a large part of his life living and working alongside Aboriginal people says it is important for their children to receive an education in their own first language.
Ted Egan who served as Administrator of the Northern Territory from 2003 to 2007 … learned to speak Tiwi while working in the Top End as a 19 year-old.
Mr Egan, a veteran Aboriginal land rights supporter and currently completing a PhD says if there is a First Language which is spoken, written, researched and understood… then Aboriginal children should be taught in this language.
