Summary
"PAW Media and Communications is an Aboriginal media organisation situated at Yuendumu in the Northern Territory of Australia. We are a Remote Indigenous Media Organisaton (RIMO) providing coordination services to RIBS (Remote Indigenous Broadcast Service) in the wider Tanami area of Central Australia. For thirty years, we've been creating televison, radio and music in the remote Aboriginal community of Yuendumu. Working with local people in language and according to local cultural protocols we create unique Aboriginal media productions. In the PAW Media area, people have an Aboriginal language as their first language, as well as being fluent in another two or three Aboriginal languages, and English. Nevertheless whilst languages such as Warlpiri have a relatively high number of speakers, the languages are being "lightened" with the introduction of English words into the vocabulary, as well as the loss of "old" or "first" language registers. A key role of PAW Media therefore is the production of radio, video and music in language to support language retention. Media workers at PAW Media are language speakers producing our content in language. The languages spoken in our area include: Alyawarr, (Central) Anmatyerr, (Eastern) Anmatyerr, (Eastern) Arrente, Gurindji, Kaytete, Luritja, Pintubi, Warlpiri, Warumungu" -- Taken from About
