This core unit of study acknowledges the importance of training PDHPE teachers who have an understanding of past and contemporary experiences of Indigenous Australians. It examines the notion of an Indigenous Australian history and examines the social, economic and health disadvantages that challenge Indigenous communities. It explores the importance and cultural meanings of sport in Indigenous communities. The unit supports them to expand their understanding of Indigenous cultures and equips students with the knowledge to provide culturally appropriate programs to students in schools. The unit will assist pre-service teachers in developing an awareness of how to integrate Indigenous issues into the health education and physical education context.
