Session 4 - Indigenous Sport Inclusion
Indigenous peoples have often not been included in sport. There is a parallel sport system that is Indigenous-led and is for Indigenous participants. Appreciating the Indigenous sport system and understanding how the two systems can work together will be the focus of this session.
