Sport & Leisure

Sporting and leisure activities reinforced social connections within Sydney’s Aboriginal community, but they also had a political dimension. From 1964 the Foundation for Aboriginal Affairs helped with housing, employment, education and welfare, as well as organising fundraising dances for the Redfern All Blacks football team. The success of this team was a significant component in the shift towards self-determination within Sydney’s Aboriginal community in the 1960s and 70s.
