Now more than ever. Titans acknowledge Reconciliation Week

This week, Australia and the Gold Coast Titans acknowledge National Reconciliation Week.

The official tagline for the week is 'now more than ever' and this week is the perfect time to reflect and act on your role in creating a better Australia, says Reconciliation Australia. 

Because now more than ever, we need you on this journey with us. 

The NRW 2024 theme, Now More Than Ever, is a reminder to all of us that, no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will – and must – continue.

It is timely on the back of the NRL's Indigenous Round last weekend, as the club celebrated its diverse cultures and Indigenous peoples across the week in a number of ways.

From the jerseys worn in yesterday's match, designed by Titans NRL player Alofiana Khan-Pereira's mother, Sylvia Khan, to the Titans Cultural Night that kicked off the week, it was a week of celebration and acknowledgement.

The story of the jersey depicts the journey of young Titans making their way to first grade with the club and a specific focus on Khan-Pereira and NRLW player, Jaime Chapman's journeys.

The jersey was proudly worn by the NRL side yesterday and will be worn by the NRLW side during their season also once it commences in July.

Much more than just a jersey though, below are some of the activities the club has been involved with from the last week:

  • The club held its third Cultural Night, with First Nations NRL, NRLW and Leagueability players taking the stage alongside Life Member, Preston Campbell OAM
  • Students were hosted from Palm Beach Currumbin’s Murri Jarjum group at NRL training on Friday. Five students painted the boots that the Titans players wore on field on Sunday.
  • Alongside the Broncos, the club held the first ever Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island gift exchange between both playing groups prior to kick off in Indigenous Round. This included an aboriginal gift hand painted by Brian Kelly’s partner Fiona Vesper and a Dhari (the Torres Strait Headdress) exchanged between David Fifita and Ezra Mam
  • Earlier in the month, the club visited Box Ridge, NSW – holding a community BBQ and launching the 2024 Indigenous jersey
