Culture is Life supported the Korin Gamadji Institute to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture during the AFL’s Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round.
Culture is Life supported Richmond’s war cry initiative, that came to life during the pre-game ceremony of the Club’s Dreamtime at the ‘G clash last Saturday night.
In an AFL first, representatives from the Tigers and Essendon performed a war cry, symbolising unity through dance and celebrating Indigenous culture.
Culture is Life provided funding, including accommodation and transport, towards the cost of the war cry for Richmond’s 16 dancers.
On Saturday night, one side of Richmond’s banner read Go Tigers, and it’s translation in Woi Wurrung, Yurrongi-dji Laguntas, and featured the Culture is Life logo.
