Description:There are five elderly Marra (lSO-639: mec, location: -15/135.5) speakers who are defying language shift in the Roper River region of Northern Australia, where all other Marra people now use Kriol, an English-based creole, as a lingua franca. This collection will contain stories in Marra, translated into Kriol and English, about the lives of the last Marra speakers and their traditional knowledge. There will also be an ethnographically oriented canon of trilingual texts, representing Marra people and traditional lifestyles. It will be of significant cultural and educational value to Marra people and inform important inguistic research.
