Sport is a central part of the life and identity of our country, but one that is rarely unpacked or questioned. The newest book by prize-winning writer Ellen van Neerven, Personal Score, offers a groundbreaking look at sport on this continent from a First Nations and queer vantage point.
Hear from Ellen as they talk about their own journey as a sports lover, the untold history of Indigenous sports, the implications of playing on stolen land, and how athletes today are challenging mainstream views of gender and sexuality, in conversation with fellow First Nations Curator Tony Birch.
