Jandamarra was an Aboriginal resistance fighter of the Bunuba people, who led armed insurrections against the European colonisation of Australia

This true account was written by the senior custodian of the Jandamarra story, Banjo Woorunmurra, and non-indigenous historian, Howard Pedersen.

Set in the Kimberley outback during the late nineteenth century, the last stage of Australia's invasion is played out in the lands of the Bunuba people. Leases are marked across Aboriginal country and, amidst the chaos and turmoil, extraordinary and sometimes contradictory relationships develop.
