NO APOLOGY NEEDED FOR BEING PROUDLY ABORIGINAL
Boxer Damien Hooper has a right to show his identity as an Aboriginal person in the Australian team.
He has nothing to apologise for being proud of who he is and where he came from.
Our peoples should be able to show that they are both Aboriginal and Australian.
The display of flags by Aboriginal athletes is not new; images of Cathy Freeman with the flag were beamed around the world in 2000.
Congress encourages the Australian Olympic Committee to find a way through this bureaucratic insanity.
