CYGNETT WNBL LAUNCHES 2022/23 INDIGENOUS ROUND
During Round 14 of the 2022-23 season, the Cygnett WNBL will host its second Indigenous Round. Aligned with National Apology Day (February 13), the themed-round will raise awareness about important Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural topics and share stories from the Indigenous women paving the way for future players.
Between 11-19 February, the WNBL will utilise its platform to provide educational resources and roll out a creative campaign produced in partnership with computer software company Adobe.
Over the past week, Adobe’s Indigenous-led production crew followed Adelaide Lightning’s Abby Cubillo as she returned home to Darwin to reconnect with the basketball clubs and programs that helped her become the first Larrakia person to compete in the WNBL.
Providing even more inspiration for Darwin’s local community Cubillo was accompanied by First Nations players Shaneice Swain from the Canberra Capitals and Nes’aya Parker-Williams from Townsville Fire.
