Respect of culture, honouring loved ones, tribes, villages, community and people, is the foundation of everything we do within the Pacific. The 2023 Queensland Reds Pasifika Warmup Tee is no different. A fusion of many familiar patterns and symbols seen throughout the Pacific, brought together to honour the heritage and connection of the players with their Homelands. Like the players, each individual design has come together to form one powerful, unified message.
A project like this it is not done by one hand alone, but many. So it is important to acknowledge and pay tribute to the artists, elders, guardians of cultural knowledge and story tellers who have shared their insight, information and provided guidance. We give thanks and pay huge respect for their inspiration. This is our interpretation:
