Physical Activity for Older Aboriginal People of the South West of Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
The thesis investigated experiences of older Aboriginal people living on Noongar Boodja engaging in a physical activity program. The research used an Indigenous methodology and evaluated Aboriginal Elders’ health outcomes. Elders experienced significant emotional, social, and physical benefits. Elders and other stakeholders confirmed that the program created a sense of belonging and reconnecting with culture. A decolonising approach works with older Aboriginal people because it acknowledges the impacts of history and social determinants of health.
