AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Indigenous Australian communities are blessed to have storytelling historians who share their humour, knowledge and insight about our people’s involvement with mainstream sports. In contrast, there are few established Indigenous historians writing in the small academic field of sports history. One of the few, Worimi historian John Maynard, has turned his attention to the subject of Indigenous participation in soccer. In The Aboriginal Soccer Tribe: A history of Aboriginal involvement with the world game, he shares stories about the contribution prominent Indigenous soccer players make to the game. By blurring the line between Indigenous storytelling and academic history, Maynard tells the reader more than the standard story about Aborigines in sport.'  (Introduction)
