Warrior, leader and Jalgangurru- a man bestowed with spiritual powers- Jandamarra led one of Australia's longest and most successful campaigns to defend Aboriginal country from the encroaching white man. In 1897 while in his mid-twenties and having led the resistance successfully for years, he was tragically gunned down. During his short life he created a legacy that should never be forgotten. The Perth premiere season at Black Swan Theatre (2008) was sold out before opening night. In 2011 the play was remounted in an outdoor production at four Kimberley (WA) locations.
