We are excited to announce that planning and preparations for Puliima 2017 have begun!
Puliima 2017, the sixth Indigenous Language and Technology conference, will be held in October 16th-19th in Cairns, Queensland. Puliima is a biennial event aimed at bringing people together from all over Australia and internationally to highlight and share the fantastic work being done in our traditional languages, prominence is given to exploring and sharing pioneering language program work and ideas, exciting products and equipment that can be used in community based language projects. The Forum allows people to network with an inspirational group of people who all share a common ambition of preserving and celebrating the languages of your country.
2017 looks set to be the year where the light shines on our languages, with the theme 'Our Languages Matter' to take centre stage for our National NAIDOC celebrations. NAIDOC week will be emphasising and celebrating the uniqueness and importance that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages play in our cultural identity. Puliima will aid in the extension of this spotlight as our languages can, and should be, celebrated all year.

What an amazing journey it’s been! As we wrap up the 5th Puliima conference we would just like to say thanks again to everybody who attended. Over 240 delegates came from far and wide to collaborate, inspire and share their stories at this amazing event.
To help keep our connections strong, we have updated our website with our 2015 wrap pages. These pages cover all the information on presenters, workshops, exhibitors and, of course, Australia's Got Language!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED, WHAT A SUCCESS!
The Puliima Team would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everybody who attended this year! We can’t show enough appreciation for the lengths people took to get to Melbourne to be a part of this special event. It is the presenters, trainers, delegates and exhibitors, who continue to shape Puliima to be such an amazing Indigenous Language Conference, which goes without saying.
We would also like to point out that this was the biggest Puliima we’ve had yet and the energy and excitement on the 5th level at the William Angliss Institute was unexplainable! With people from all parts of Australia along with our International guests, this year has been unforgettable.
Puliima is continuing to grow with each gathering, and to ensure that this event keeps its enthusiasm, passion and energy for our languages, we are more than eager to hear your feedback. It's really important to us to make sure that everyone walks away feeling inspired and invigorated after each forum.
