The design of the Bulldogs 2019 Indigenous jersey centres around reconciliation, which is what the Indigenous round is all about.
Reconciliation promotes understanding, recognition and most importantly education.
The jersey displays meeting places and tracks leading to each other and this represents what we are working towards as a community today - everyone being connected, working towards the same goal.
The footprints are a representation of all the players walking together to reach a greater understanding of Aboriginal culture, because without understanding there is no reconciliation.
The three hand prints represent our current Aboriginal players Adam Elliot, Chris Smith and Reimis Smith. Who connect our culture to this great club- The Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs.
The goanna on the back of the jersey is a symbol of the Chifley College Mount Druitt campus students and staff.
The goanna is a totem of the school and the colour meeting place circles represent the four leaning places at the school. Education is power for our young Aboriginal youth.
Tedbury is the teams warrior who fought many battles against colonisation on the land that we now call Canterbury-Bankstown.
Tedbury’s strength, courage and commitment are all qualities we want the greatest team of all to endure.
