Why it is important to add Aboriginal Content/perspective/worldview?  How will it enhance the whole learner….learning experience…?This unit is a physical education unit that focuses on traditional Aboriginal sports games. Through these games the students will learn to enhance their locomotor and non‐locomotor skills. They will understand the benefits of working as a team, as well as learn about the history of the games.  One widespread American Indian belief is that you can learn while you play and play while you learn (Bruchac, 2000).Traditionally, all aspects of life were integrated for Aboriginal People. Work, play, leisure and spiritualism were interconnected. Life was based on the need for fitness in order to survive; fitness of the body mind and spirit (Miller, 2002).
