The Korin Gamadji Institute would like to congratulate Jordan Edwards, who was named Mr NAIDOC 2016.

The Victorian NAIDOC committee announced Edwards’ award last Saturday, to coincide with the NAIDOC week, which celebrates cultural pride.

The week, which was an initiative in the 1920’s, driven by Aboriginal activist, William Cooper, celebrates the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Edwards has a strong connection with the KGI and was instrumental in developing and performing the war cry prior to Richmond’s annual Dreamtime at the ‘G match against Essendon earlier this year.

Edwards spoke to the Club’s Roar Vision about his involvement in the war cry.
