The St George Illawarra Rugby League Football Club is committed to sustained success on and off the field and understands that the foundation of its success is in the relationship that it has developed and maintained with its community. The club respects the unique position of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the First Peoples of our nation, and values the contribution they make to our country, our community, to our sport and to our club.
Over the next week the Dragons will continue to celebrate NAIDOC week with a variety of community groups. Last week we joined Carlton South Public School in their celebrations and acknowledgements.
Indigenous players, Josh Kerr and Jai Field joined Reece Robson and chatted about their heritage and the importance in recognising our Traditional Owners and the significance it has in our Australian culture.
The St George Illawarra Dragons pay respect to the Dharawal people as Traditional Owners who have, and continue to nurture the land of which our catchment is part. We acknowledge the consequences of the impact of white settlement for people, communities and our nation. We believe we can walk together to a better future and are committed to Reconciliation and to promoting greater understanding of Aboriginal cultures within our catchment and the wider community.
