Dreamtime at the 'G entertainment

A line-up of award-winning Indigenous Australian artists will perform at the annual Dreamtime at the 'G match on Saturday.

FIND OUT MORE

The Laguntas Dance is a celebration that pays respect to the Traditional Owners of the land on which the Richmond Football Club is located, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nations. 
 
Drawing inspiration from previous Dreamtime celebration dances, the Laguntas dance is a collective expression of culture.
The dance commences with a call to Country, which grounds our dancers and acknowledges land, sea and people.
 
The name Lagunta, which translates to Tiger, was adopted by the Korin Gamadji Institute, and is used across Indigenous youth football and netball programs.
 
In sharing this dance with the community, we hope that you will join us in celebrating and respecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

Ahead of the coin toss, Richmond and Essendon will partake in a cultural exchange of gifts.

Post-game

After the final siren there will be an on-field presentation of the Yiooken Award for Best on Ground performance.
