A brief history of the annual football competition involving teams from all over the state, which is little known Aboriginal event that is significant for far more than its purely sporting connotations, Annual New South Wales Aboriginal Rugby League Knockout Carnival, is presented. The different articulation of political activism, the importance of kinship and family relations, the organization, the cultural practice and historical association that interact in a dynamic process are analysed.
