Jandamarra - hero or criminal?
One hundred years ago, Jandamarra led his people against the white occupation of Bunuba lands. At 21 he organised his first ambush, and by the age of 24 he was dead. To his people he was a hero, to the whites a dangerous 'baddie' who must be captured at any cost.
Kimberley Warrior is a gripping frontier story set in the rocky mountain ranges, gorges and tunnels of the Kimberley region in Western Australia. It is also the story of a complex, gifted person caught between two worlds, black and white.
This retelling of Jandamarra's story is authorised by the Bunuba people.
