Indigenous ally scholarship in sport shares an engagement with critical social justice and anti-oppression approaches that can often enact and obscure systemic violence. Emerging settler learning, engagement and solidarities are leading scholars from multiple disciplines to turn to settler colonial theory in search of new conceptual tools to address decolonization. This session interrogates what happens when settler and Indigenous scholars seek to deconstruct and transform the settler colonial logic of systems in sport research. What are we learning and unlearning through these approaches? How does action occur and how do we become engaged scholars? What opportunities and possibilities emerge? What does such action look like? How do we envisage decolonial futures? How do we avoid being complicit in a violent history of benevolence, for example, in sport for development? What challenges, complexities and barriers are faced? Why and how do we still resist using settler colonial theory in sport research?
