The Aboriginal Nat Turner
The Australian Aborigine Jandamarra was born c. 1870 and died April 1, 1897. In 1894, the great aboriginal leader began defending his people’s territory against the encroaching white settlers who were willing to do anything for more farmland. He was a member of the Bunuba tribe — an indigenous group living in the Kimberley district of Western Australia. The district’s mountainous terrain became a strategic stronghold during the three-year fight against colonizers.
