Humber, Oak Park, USask, Lethbridge launch Indigenous jerseys for sports teams

Humber College, Oak Park High School, the University of Saskatchewan, and Lethbridge College have introduced new Indigenous jerseys for their sports teams as a way of honouring Truth and Reconciliation. Humber collaborated with Tribal Lands to create special jerseys for the Humber Hawks that include a prominent Humber “H,” an image of a hawk, and the Tribal Lands tipi logo. Oak Park’s new jerseys were designed by Indigenous students and athletes Dawson Andrews and Rocco Linklater. The jersey was designed to blend Indigenous teachings with the values of being an Oak Park Raider, and features a red handprint on one shoulder and an orange handprint on the other. USask Huskie Athletics received a special logo that was created by artist Chris Chipak from Red Pheasant First Nations. The logo incorporates a variety of symbols, such as the inukshuk, a feather, and the Indigenous medicine wheel. Lethbridge’s Kodiaks team unveiled new Indigenous jerseys that will only be worn on special occasions. They were first used on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
