Summary This is the story of Jandamarra also known as Pigeon, who was an Indigenous Australian of the Bunuba people who led one of the few organised armed insurrections documented against European settlement in Australia. The scene is the magnificent Kimberley outback during the late nineteenth century, and the last stage of Australia's invasion is about to be played out in the lands of the Bunuba people. Leases are marked on a map covering huge areas and vast herds of cattle and sheep spread out across Aboriginal country.
