Summary

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.
