Indigenous Nationals offer an opportunity to promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture in a positive light, and each year the Games receive increasing exposure in both mainstream and Indigenous media. The competition is an amazing environment to not only celebrate the rich sporting culture of indigenous Australia but to also acknowledge the heritage and history of the participating student-athletes.
So far the Western Waagyls have won seven championships (more than any other university) and have been placed runner-up four times. If you are an Indigenous student from UWA and would like to attend Nationals please contact Brendon DeGois or speak to a WASAC committee member to express your interest.
More information about the 2022 competition will be available in 2022.
