Cultural Sign Language.

In #movement and #action, in #selfexpression and #song, in deep-rooted #tradition and modern #constructions, signs are part of every day, evolving and #articulating every aspect of #life in bimodal-bilingualism.

#Speech is #culturally forbidden, during periods of #mourning, in the presence of #sacredobjects and at #specialsites, in interactions around #relationships of avoidance and poison kin.

#Communicating over distance, for emphasis, for silent and #secretexchanges, and for the soundless practices of #hunting and #fishing.

This is where you experience the #culturalsignlanguage of many #Aboriginalcommunities.
