The Hawthorn Indigenous Guernsey

Our Hawthorn Indigenous Guernsey has been Designed by proud Nyarinyin, Pitjantjantjara and Yankuntjantjara woman Justine Ronberg.

Ronberg, a former Worawa Aboriginal College Student, entered a school competition in early 2019, with hopes of creating a piece of artwork that would be forever etched in Hawthorn's history.

Her work was selected by Hawthorn Indigenous players Chad Wingard, Shaun Burgoyne and Jarman Impey who felt a strong connection to the stories represented in her design.

The design features symbols that represent the many different aspects of AFL. From footprints signifying the journey players embark on to achieve their AFL dreams, to a layer embodying the wider brown and gold family, members and supporters, the intricate design is stacked full of unique stories and symbolism.


100% of the proceeds for this year's auction of the Indigenous guernseys will go to Worawa College.

Worawa is a full boarding school catering for girls in the middle years of schooling; Years 7-12. Worawa provides a holistic education program integrating education, culture, and wellbeing - ensuring students have the opportunity to progress academically, socially, emotionally, culturally, and spiritually. The College aims to harness the potential of girls to learn and develop the academic skills, knowledge, confidence, and attitude as future leaders.

Please note, if the player does not participate in the Indigenous Round Match or for any unforeseen circumstances (for example injuries) that may occur, the guernsey will be sold as a player authentic signed guernsey, not match-worn.

All guernseys will come presented in a collectible tin with an outer decal to mark the occasion and each accompanied by a 'Certificate of Authenticity' provided by the AFL Players Association and fully licensed by the AFL.
