Language Activist recognised in Queen's Birthday Honours

Channel Nine: Language lover listed in Queen's honours

Arrernte elder, Veronica Mary Dobson has been appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for service to the indigenous community as a linguist, naturalist and ecologist.

Not only is it pertinent to this blog that she has been honoured in this way, but also that Channel Nine saw fit to create an article specifically about her receipt of the medal, rather than as a footnote in a larger Honours List article.
