The Jandamarra Story

The Jandamarra Story

Winner: US Videographer Awards 2018, Excellence, Cultural Category

Joe Ross, Bunuba Elder, tells the story of Jandamarra which we share as part of National Reconciliation Week. Our short film describes the historic and culturally significant story of Bunuba bushtracker, Jandamarra told deep in the caves of Tunnel Creek. This haunting story is in keeping with the key theme for Reconciliation this week ‘Don’t Keep History a Mystery: Learn. Share. Grow.’ Jandamarra was a revered warrior who led the resistance against European colonisation in the Kimberley Region. He organised the first attack that used guns against British invasion in 1894. He was killed in Tunnel creek by police in 1897, his head was cut off as a trophy and sent to England. The Bunuba people still haven’t found the skull, but they think they are close to getting it back. This short film was produced as a Fancy Films pro bono project as part of our ongoing commitment to sharing stories from Indigenous Communities.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get anything done.
