The David Unaipon Award was inaugurated in 1988 by University of Queensland Press. Awarded to the best writing of the year by an unpublished Indigenous writer, the award was named in honour of David Unaipon, one of the earliest published Indigenous writers.
This trail collects together Unaipon Award-winning books and authors.
This trail presents some of the information in BlackWords about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sportspeople. Some of these stories celebrate great sporting achievements, but others also examine the cultural obstacles that Indigenous sportspeople have faced throughout history. Some items can be viewed online and others will be accessible at your local library or bookshop.
This trail should not be considered comprehensive, but as an introduction to works about Indigenous sportsmen and sportswomen.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women have served Australia in war from the Boer War (1899-1902) to the present, exhibiting the same loyalty and patriotism as their white and European counterparts, but received limited recognition, especially in the wars before the late 1960s.
This trail explores works relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders participating in the armed services.
