Our Indigenous Round match may be over, however that does not mean the end of the conversation.
At MetroStars, we continue to work closely with our local Indigenous community on and off the field.
How we talk about reconciliation is just as important as the actions we take.
Language itself is active. It impacts attitudes, understandings and relationships in a very real sense.
Using respectful and inclusive language and terminology is an essential part of reconciliation and strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community.
Over the last four years we have ran the MetroStars’ Aboriginal Football Academy in conjunction with the South Australian Aboriginal Sporting Training Academy to provide a safe learning space for students of Indigenous heritage to further their SACE/VET subject.
