'This book examines physical activities and sports important to Erambie Kooris, including the animated form of storytelling that has a significant physical performance component, games such as rounders and skipping, as well as bare knuckle fighting. It also examines the connections between physical activities and sports as cultural practices.'(Source: Koori Mail, issue 548 2013)

Notes

  • Dedication: Erambie people are fearless, loud and generous. This book is dedicated to one of them. I only know my grandmother, Rebecca Bamblett, through the oral history of our community. I have been told: 'Your Grandmother would die at anyone's feet. She was never afraid of anyone.' I am thankful that my grandmother's generation possessed the strength, not only to resist unwelcomed intrusions on their lives, but to carry on our ways as they lived them. This book is for my Nan, she sounds like my kind of person.

The Famous Erambie Allblacks Lawrence Bamblett , 2015 single work column
— Appears in: AIATSIS News , August 2015;
'The Erambie Allblacks represented a small Wiradjuri community few more than 100 people in central-western New South Wales. The Allblacks played their first game against the Cowra Pioneers in 1922 in a game that was full of thrills. The speed and tackling of the Aboriginal team was a revelation. Reports about the game were that the new team would be hard to beat. Newspapers reported that the team roused the spectators to a high pitch of enthusiasm with barracking not heard at the Cowra ground. '

'Our stories are our survival is fascinating, enlightening and extremely well written. I thought I was culturally sensitive, relatively aware and extremely interested in Indigenous ways of knowing. This book showed me how naive I am. I was left convinced that I am the product of a white version of a black story.' (Introduction)

'Storytelling is everyday practice and experience for Wiradjuri Kooris in rural New South Wales. It is how kids learn who they are, it reinforces Koori identity, and enables continuity of culture. Our Stories are Our Survivalby Wiradjuri academic Lawrence Bamblett (2013) examines stories told by Wiradjuri people from Erambie in Cowra, countering pervasive ‘straight-line’ (focused) stories told by newspaper journalists, academics and whitefellas when representing Indigenous peoples (46). As the evocative title suggests, stories are the lifeblood of this text, but it is more than a sum of oral histories.' (Introduction)
