Reconciliation in Olympism explores the representation and involvement of indigenous culture in the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, from the time when Sydney bid for the Games to the staging of the first Olympic Arts Festival 'The Festival of the Dreaming'. The Festival was a landmark event in the cultural life of indigenous and mainstream Australia, giving indigenous Australians the opportunity to present themselves, significantly departing from traditional representations of indigenous Australia by non-indigenous people. Reconciliation in Olympism is a challenging and even controversial book in which Hanna argues that 1997 Festival provided the debate that Australia should have had in 1988. She also examines many issues relating to the indigenous involvement in the Olympic Games and suggests that Olympism should encourage reconciliation.
