This chapter looks at the leisure activities available to the indigenous inmates of the Mona Mona Mission. It explores the recreation officially made available by government and mission authorities, the changes over time, and their reception by the inmates. It also examines Aboriginal agency in creating their own fun times, both within and outside of the regulated environment in which they were confined.
