Callum Clayton-Dixon

Callum Clayton-Dixon is an Aboriginal linguist and historian whose people come from the southern end of the New England Tableland, New South Wales, around Walcha, Woolbrook, and the Ingleba Aboriginal Reserve—Ambēyang country. He lived in Armidale, on Anēwan country, and is spearheading efforts to revive the long-dormant local language. Callum is currently undertaking a PhD project to develop a dictionary and grammar for his ancestral tongue, and began teaching language classes in 2018. He is also the author of a book titled Surviving New England: a history of Aboriginal resistance and resilience through the first forty years of the colonial apocalypse.
