    Weaker

    Make and enforce our own cultural support laws as Local Government.

    Talk to Federal and State Governments about changing their laws and policies.

    Nothing - it is not TSIRC’s business

    The biggest threat to cultural practice is the loss of language, followed by the media and government policy and laws.
