Richmond have become the first AFL club to support Treaty advancement in the lead up to the federal election and will use the Dreamtime game against Essendon in a bid to encourage indigenous Victorians to take part in the historic vote.
With the AFL yet to form a united view before a forecast referendum on constitutional recognition, the Tigers have taken a stand using the Indigenous Dreamtime Game at the MCG on May 25 to endorse a treaty and encourage all Aboriginal people across Victoria to take part.
Tigers president Peggy O’Neal said the new partnership with Treaty would ‘‘take the club’s responsibilities as a leader in reconciliation to a new level. We want to give the Treaty Advancement Commission every chance of success.

The Tigers, who wore their Dreamtime guernsey in support of Goodes after he briefly retreated from football following the treatment from West Coast fans, will have the logo supporting a treaty printed on their jumpers for the Dreamtime fixture.
Treaty will also be emblazoned on Richmond’s banner, the MCG LED signage and across the coverage of the Dreamtime game.
Peggy O’Neal is to announce the partnership on Thursday with Treaty Advancement Commissioner Jill Gallagher, who said: ‘‘This is a moment that every Aboriginal person in Victoria can be excited about — Treaty is coming to the MCG. Dreamtime at the ’G is always a special time for our mob and this year’s game comes right in the middle of a very important time.’’
The Uluru Statement from the Heart was released in May 2017 to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Referendum Convention. Calls for a treaty involves a contract between two sovereign parties while the proposal to recognise Indigenous people in the Australian constitution involves a set of governing laws.
Richmond, the first sporting club in Australia to put in place a Reconciliation Action Plan, last year become the first club in the country to present at the United Nations Forum on Indigenous issues, sharing the history of the 11-year-old Korin Gamadgi Institute based at Punt Road.
Not sure what this will look like, but it's the first bit of news for the Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round.

Just for the record of the bases for the jumpers

Sydney (Home) v Collingwood (Home)
Hawthorn (Home) v Port Adelaide (Home)
Western Bulldogs (Home) v North Melbourne (Home)
Adelaide (Home) v West Coast (Home)
Gold Coast (Home) v Geelong (Home)
Richmond (Home) v Essendon (Clash)
Melbourne (Home) v Giants (Home)
St Kilda (Home) v Carlton (Clash)
Fremantle (Home) v Brisbane (Away)

You will see some of the away teams also wear the jumper in Round 11 so they can wear it at home. From memory, Port Adelaide, Giants, Brisbane and North Melbourne are teams that I can remember to wear them a second time.

We normally wear ours twice too (have since 2015 I believe) as part of our Closing The Gap/Djilang round. I'd expect us to wear it at home in either Round 9 (vs WB @ GMHBA) or Round 11 (vs SYD @ GMHBA)

A David Wirrpanda tribute jumper perhaps - look forward to seeing the whole design
The Eagles’ Indigenous guernsey featured the Wirrpanda Foundation logo last year, just something they do to support the foundation.

From the pics provided it looks like it will be a wings design with feathers for the wings. Which is something they should have been doing from the beginning. Should look good.

The Eagles jumper looks fantastic, love the feather design for the wings and the associated story is very cool.

Not sure whether it's just me though, or does the Eagle head look out of place? When intergrated with the rest of the jumper the logo doesn't look it belongs

Using old Hungary jacks logo, looks a lot better.

I wonder if the white ring would be around the logo if West Coast has the regular AFL logo and not the premiers one? The gold of the premiers logo is similar to the colour of the feathers.

Really like the jumper
