Australian indigenous languages suffer in budget
"Indigenous languages and the stolen generations were another casualty of the 2002-03 federal budget. The $7.2 million previously allocated to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) for preserving and maintaining Indigenous languages was almost halved under the new federal budget.

ATSIC invests around $4.2 million annually in the preservation and revitalisation of Indigenous languages. During the last three years, it has received an extra $9 million to help reunite members of the stolen generations with their Indigenous languages."
