Our Resource Library contains a section dedicated to Indigenous inclusivity, among other helpful materials. These resources can help Indigenous families to find useful information on sports and recreation with special cultural relevance.
Our Activity Bank has been specially made to include many activities from Indigenous cultures, which allows for an inclusive approach to physical activity. We offer families the opportunity to partake in activities closer to their own cultures that reflect sport and recreation that has been a part of their history, rather than only activities based on sport and recreation from other cultures.
