Cathy Freeman reflects on the importance of her Indigenous identity in her athletics career, and reactions to her decision to celebrate her 1994 Commonwealth Games gold medal win by carrying both the Aboriginal and Australian flags. Discussion questions: Why was carrying the Aboriginal flag as part of Freeman's celebration controversial at the time? How were reactions to Adam Goodes' "war dance" celebration similar or different?
