Hawthorn have unveiled their indigenous guernsey for 2016.

Yorta Yorta/Wiradjuri painter Jirra Lulla-Harvey combined with Indigenous players Shaun Burgoyne, Bradley Hill, Cyril Rioli and Jermaine Miller-Lewis to design the guernsey.

“I wanted to try and capture their different journeys and individual motifs that represented each of them,” Lulla-Harvey said.

“The players are the ones that fans want to know about, they are everyone’s heroes and so for the fans to get an insight into their life outside football and their cultural identities, I think is really important.”

What do you think of your indigenous jumper Hawks fans?


  1. It does not represent Hawthorn at all.
    Unless Hawthorn add a third colour to their Brown and Yellow, any Hawthorn guernsey has to predominantly brown and yellow, and this one features a lot of white, which should only ever appear on the Gurnseys of St Kilda, Footscray, Sydney, North, Collingwood, Geelong, Giants, Fremantle and Port Adelaide.
