Indigenous leader Warren Mundine wants AFL teams to perform a traditional Aboriginal war dance before matches.

The prime minister's indigenous adviser wants AFL teams to perform a traditional Aboriginal war dance before matches, much like the Maori Haka.

Warren Mundine says the idea is aimed at sharing indigenous culture and would not be divisive if all players got involved.

"One thing about the Haka is it's performed by non-Maori New Zealanders as well as Maori-New Zealanders and they come together and share this cultural experience," he told ABC Radio.
