The paper is based on the collection of Aboriginal oral histories from both the Darug and Dharawal people regarding the historical and contemporary association of Homebush Bay, site of the Olympic Stadium and Village, and other places of significance around Sydney. Given the rich cultural heritage of Homebush bay, the paper asks why Sydney Aboriginal people have not been invited by SOCOG to share the ceremonies or to offer advice about local culture, people and places
