Jingeri! I’m borobi
He’s a little fella with big plans..
You see there used to be more than 250 Aboriginal languages spoken in Australia and now 90% are endangered. Borobi is super proud to keep these languages alive… so proud he wears it on his chest for all to see. His new shirt was designed by his jimbelung (friend) Preston Campbell.
Did you know? By saying Borobi you are already using the Yugambeh language!
