For Our Elders

For Our Elders. The Melbourne Rebels acknowledges 2023 NAIDOC WEEK, which is celebrated across Australia from July 2 - 9. The theme of this year’s NAIDOC Week is ‘For Our Elders’. Elders have played, and continue to play, a crucial role in our communities and families. They are cultural knowledge holders, trailblazers, nurturers, advocates, teachers, survivors, leaders, hard workers and our loved ones. We pay our respects to the Elders we’ve lost and we pay homage to those who continue to fight and lead. We were honoured to take part in a traditional smoking ceremony earlier this year, blessing our 2023 Naarm Rebels Cultural Jersey, celebrating the cultures that form the Naarm Rebels.
