'Gane - Kaan' 'Warrior Snake' - Indigenous Round 2020.

Kaan (Wurundjeri) Gane (Yorta-Yorta) the spirit warrior snake represents strength in the fierce battle – marngrook – football, the warrior dance between two homelands – two teams. The shield signifies the two halves – two clans meeting for men’s ceremony, an important event celebrated through corroboree – the match. The circular symbols represent the warriors – players, travelling and gathering on country for tanderrum – a celebration of tribes gathering.
