In celebration of National Reconciliation Week, the AFL Players’ Association has launched its updated Indigenous Map.
The map highlights the cultural diversity of the AFL’s Indigenous players, with the league’s 87 male players and 22 female players represented across more than 71cultural and language groups.
Jarrod Harbrow, member of the AFL Players’ Association Indigenous Advisory Board, said the map celebrates the cultural diversity of the AFL’s Indigenous population.
“The map represents not only the Indigenous men and women in the AFL, but all their families and connections to country,” Harbrow said.
“It’s great to see where everyone is from and the map should be used for cultural education within clubs to learn more about their Indigenous players.”
Harbrow is a proud Yirrganydji/Kuku-Yalanji Aboriginal Australian from Far North Queensland.
Off the field he is a staunch ambassador for helping Indigenous youth reach their potential, highlighted through his Harbrow Mentoring program he runs with his brother.
The SUNS veteran is one of five Indigenous players on the SUNS AFL list in 2020.
