Abstract

This publication is designed to outline information on traditional games and details relevant to A Typology of the Traditional Games of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. The typology has been developed as a result of an extensive review of information on traditional games which has been researched over many years.

The use of a typology provides a convenient way of classifying and organising the body of knowledge about the traditional games in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. It also allows for a greater understanding of the similarities and differences between different types of traditional games and provides the opportunity to identify their integration within culture as well as with other cultural aspects.
