Using the cultural competence pedagogical framework, this subject provides students with the opportunity to examine how participation in sport and physical activity impacts upon Indigenous Australian peoples. Through the use of a comparative cultural analysis of Australian, New Zealand and North American sporting case studies, students will be challenged to reflect on, question and critique their cultural assumptions and contest indigenous sporting stereotypes.
The subjects learning design further creates spaces for students to explore the place of sport and physical activity in (re)producing the cultural identity of indigenous peoples. In this subject, students will be engaged in learning experiences that require them to propose and advocate for policy and practices that acknowledge, accommodate and celebrate Indigenous Australian cultural diversity in sport, recreation and physical activity settings.
