The South west Indigenous Corporation would like to share our acknowledgment of Mike’s selflessness in his efforts to empower an outback Indigenous group to build the capacity of their community. No request has been too daunting; his ability to change our words to project the exact message to another level of language in the pursuit of our project development. Mike’s work has been realised in this, the International Year of Indigenous Languages, with a large grant delivered to our community of St George to record, disseminate and preserve the Indigenous languages of local Nations. There are many people and groups in our shire who appreciate efforts made on their behalf.
