Pride, Resilience and Identity: Reimagining Aboriginal Sport History (2020–2024)

Sport is central to Indigenous communities, identities and cultures. This project aims to engage Australian Aboriginal communities in the history-making process by combining the passion for sport with culturally appropriate digital technologies. The goal is to expand our understanding of the complexity of Aboriginal existence during their institutionalisation under the State Protection Acts. Anticipated benefits include the empowerment associated with Aboriginal people reclaiming their histories. The scholarship produced will prioritise Aboriginal agendas, interests and narratives, facilitating reconciliation through an understanding of the multifaceted relationship between sport and Aboriginal communities.
