Every year the AFL pays respect to Indigenous culture with two rounds that show a beautiful display of art and traditions depicted on their playing guernseys.
Sir Doug Nicholls was a fighter for social justice and became the first Aboriginal-Australian to be knighted in 1972, and his impact continues on even today.
Here's how each AFL club will be suiting up for Sir Doug Nicholls Round.
Presenting, our 2023 Indigenous Guernsey 🖤❤️💛#weflyasone
— Adelaide Crows (@Adelaide_FC) May 2, 2023
The Crows guernsey created by Anmatyerr educator and artist, April Napangardi Campbell, is AFLW star Danielle Ponter's aunty from the Northern Territory. The message depicted on the guernsey is a connection in reflection on how this project brought Ponter with her aunty for the first time. The connection meaning also focuses on being one club including all players, staff, and fans.
