North Melbourne has released its indigenous guernsey for 2017.

The guernsey was designed by apparel partner Canterbury, along with help from Lindsay Thomas, Jed Anderson and former Roos’ player, Daniel Wells.

“We’ve had some great indigenous jumpers over the past few years, but this one is particularly special to us,” Lindsay Thomas told the club’s website.

“We wanted something that represented all the Indigenous players that have pulled on the North jumper over the decades. Sarrita’s circles represent the various tribes we are all from.

“Wellsy came up with the idea to recreate the iconic North Melbourne kangaroo but with a more Indigenous interpretation, which looks fantastic.

“We were all heavily involved in the idea and the design.

“This jumper has a significant storyline and I can’t wait to wear it.”

The Kangas will wear the jersey on May 28 against Carlton in round 10 in Sir Doug Nicholls round.
