Buroinjin, an Indigenous game once played with grass-stuffed, kangaroo skinned balls, is gaining popularity in Australian schools. The game has been added to the curriculum of around half of the schools in Canberra, and is one of more than 100 traditional sports being taught by Australian teachers.
