Nations of Origin is a multifaceted sport, cultural, education and leadership program which culminates during NAIDOC week annually. The program has four main components: reconciliation, education, cultural identity and sport.
Cultural identity is a focal point of the project with all teams representing their community under their traditional local Aboriginal nation name from their area, with uniforms adorned with totems of their Aboriginal nation.
Held over the past three years, Nations of Origin has quickly become the largest Aboriginal youth sporting event in NSW with more than 3500 participants since the inception of the program.
