The Brisbane Lions 2019 Kids Replica Indigenous Guernsey will be worn during the 2019 Sir Doug Nicholls Round and proudly celebrates the contributions made by Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander peoples to the game of AFL. Featuring a unique Indigenous inspired design by artist Derek Oram who is a Birri Gubba-Barada Ghungullu-Darumbul man, letting his cultural heritage shine through his artwork. Working with the Brisbane Lions on the 2019 Sir Dough Nicholls Round Indigenous Guernsey was a dream come true and has provided Derek and his family with the ability to display their strong historical, cultural and spiritual connection to the wider Brisbane region in particular Woolloongabba. Constructed from 100% lightweight polyester fabrication, the Guernsey features a V-neck with badge design and reinforced seams for lasting durability. Proudly display your Lions pride while clearly honouring the Indigenous culture and all they have done for the AFL past, present and future.

  • Derek Oram has stuck with his roots painting across two canvases which were replicated on this Guernsey. he paintings depict the Lore places for men and women across the Brisbane region. Together the paintings display a traditional map focusing on ancient culturally important parts of the Brisbane Central Business District.
  • The small white dots represent the old travelling pathways of Indigenous ancestors between meeting places. These tracks are now the main roads used to link the suburbs of Brisbane.
  • The famous Brisbane Lions colours have been incorporated to display the sunset that blend the mountains into the night sky. Totems are placed within the stars to resemble the individual and unique significance of the Indigenous players heritage and strong cultural connection. Outlines in the stars depict the Emu, Flying Fox and Majestic Lizard which are just a handful of the Indigenous players totems. The story of the stars plays a strong role in Aboriginal culture and most indigenous cultures of the world.
  • Derek has used the traditional cross hatching technique to create the goanna, the Yuggara totem of Brisbane. The Yuggara people are entitled to protect the goanna through the Lore of the land. The strong prominent yellow line represents the Brisbane River whilst the finer yellow lines represent the various creeks and rivers.
