2022 Vodafone Warriors Puma 'Te Amokura' Indigenous Jersey - Youth
Developed in partnership with PUMA and Te Tairāwhiti based Tā Moko artists Maia Gibbs (Ngāi Tāmanuhiri, Rongowhakaata, Ngāti Kahungungu) and Henare Brooking (Ngāti Porou, Rongowhakaata, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Tūwharetoa) of Toi Ake māori creative studio.
Our 2022 Indigenous jersey, Te Amokura, is a powerful expression of our connection, unity and identity; and will be worn in the round 12 match against the Newcastle Knights on Saturday 28 May in celebration of the NRL Indigenous Round.
Te Amokura jersey takes its inspiration from the manu (bird) of the same name. known across the Pacific, Australia and Aotearoa. The Amokura helped the great navigators of the pacific chart the largest body of water in the world. It is known for its two distinct red elongated tail feathers which were highly prized by foremost warriors and chiefs throughout Te moana nui a Kiwa. These are represented by two red strips on the back of the jersey.
The colours represent significant elements of the club’s identity but also the journey over the last three seasons and the sacrifices made by players and staff to base themselves away from home, their families and their fans.
Blue represents mana moana. The ocean that connects Aotearoa, Australia and the Pacific, carrying our collective whakapapa.
Green represents mana whenua. The land, Aotearoa acknowledging the true home the Warriors and importantly the mana whenua of Australia. Our Aboriginal whanaunga and the original people of Australia who have played host to the team over the last three seasons.
Red represents mana tāngata. The people, connecting players past, present and future, interweaving the whakapapa of each individual as they move into the field of battle.
The black represents Te Pō, a place of development and learning while the white is Te Ao, a place of expression and action.
The jersey is like a korowai (cloak) that adorns the wearer, not just as a jersey but as a representation of their own journey. It is a celebration of our cultural identity and a representation of the connection we share as indigenous people across the world.
The new 2022 Warriors x PUMA Indigenous Jersey is a must have for every Warriors fan. This Jersey is the exact replica of what the players wear on field during the Indigenous round.
