Australians love sport: playing it, watching it, talking it, reading about it. In one area - Aboriginal and Islander sport - we know only a fraction of the real achievements. A few outstanding men and women are household names: Lionel Rose in the ring, Evonne Goolagong-Cawley on the court, Cathy Freeman on the tartan track, Mal Meninga and Polly Farmer on the league and Aussie rules ovals. But there is so much more greatness and triumph out there, much of it buried in history or known to only a handful of fans. Black Diamonds brings it together, for the first time, the 129 indigenous Australians who comprise the first Aboriginal and Islander Sports Hall of Fame. Representing 25 sports, from athletics and Aussie rules to tennis and woodchopping , their achievements are part of Australia's sporting history. Their stories are great stories: sometimes tragic, they are all triumphs over adversity. composers. Visual artists and craftspeople will find the advice in this book both practical and useful; it will give them the skills and confidence to promote their work and increase their earnings.
