Dive into Heritage with the Dolphins' NRL Indigenous Round Jerseys (2023-2025)

The Dolphins proudly present a captivating trilogy of jerseys for the NRL Indigenous Rounds from 2023 to 2025, each crafted to honor the land's Traditional Owners and celebrate the profound connections with the buangan (dolphins). These jerseys are not just sportswear; they are a tribute to the local First Nations peoples, the land, and the shared stories that have shaped their culture.

Artistic Essence Each jersey incorporates segments of an exquisite artwork commissioned from the acclaimed artist Lyndon Davis, a Traditional Custodian of the Gubbi Gubbi / Kabi Kabi people. Titled ‘The Calling of the Dolphins’, the artwork is deeply rooted in the cultural practices of Quandamooka Country (Moreton Bay), where Aboriginal people engaged dolphins to aid in their fishing—creating a symphony of water percussion and spear grinding that called the dolphins to drive fish ashore.

Symbolic Colors and Designs

  • 2023 Red Jersey: Symbolizes the Gubbi Gubbi / Kabi Kabi and Ningyningy peoples and the red cliffs of Quandamooka Country, echoing the legend of the dolphin’s blowhole created in a great battle.
  • 2024 Gold Jersey: Represents the Quandamooka people to the east, capturing the essence of the golden sands of Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island) and the Sunshine Coast.
  • 2025 Jersey: Will embody the Turrbal and Yuggera peoples to the south and west, reflecting the rich soils of Meanjin (Brisbane)'s river plains.

A Tribute to Unity and Legacy Unified in design, these jerseys also nod respectfully to the Aboriginal flag, celebrating all First Nations people across Australia. Remarkably, the name 'Dolphins' on the jersey is replaced with the Indigenous term 'Buangan', reinforcing the team's deep respect and celebration of First Nations culture.

A Legacy of Leadership Beyond their stunning designs, these jerseys represent the Dolphins' commitment to cultural heritage, marking the club's historical significance as the nurturing ground for Arthur Beetson, the first First Nations person to captain Australia in any sport.

Experience the spirit, the stories, and the strength of the First Nations with each wear of this powerful jersey trilogy, a symbol of enduring connections and cultural pride.
