Te Kura Pō: 2024 Indigenous Round jersey unveiled

The One New Zealand Warriors will don their 2024 Indigenous Round jersey – Te Kura Pō – in their round 12 match against the Dolphins at Go Media Stadium on May 26.

The third in a whānau of jerseys designed by Toi Ake artists Maia Gibbs and Henare Brooking, Te Kura Pō acknowledges the club’s rich past, the gift of the present and the responsibility to the future.

Woven together with the same thread, it joins Te Amokura (2022) and Te Kāhu Kura (2023) to represent the overarching journey the Warriors have been on for the past three seasons, from being based in Australia, returning home and establishing the club’s new pathways teams.

Te Kura Pō represents returning to te pō, the place of wānanga – learning and development – to redefine what the club is and where it wants to go.

When the time comes to step into Te Ao Mārama – the light of full expression – the Warriors will know where they are headed, who they are taking with them and they’ll have the processes to execute at the highest level.

This jersey aligns a visual whakapapa to the previous two indigenous jerseys and, most importantly, to the club’s colours.

Te Kura Pō acknowledges Te Amokura with the red feathers on the back of the jersey to connect all those who have gone before but to also allow the next generation to take flight.

It has the responsibility of creating something for those in the future who will wear the One New Zealand Warriors’ jersey, to put it in a better place and to allow them the opportunity to add their own thread to where they stand.
