(Study Guide) Yagan
Yagan is the account of the brutal murder of Aboriginal warrior Yagan and the repatriation of his remains almost 180 years later. Murdered in 1833 by those he trusted and then cruelly beheaded, the return of Yagan's skull to Noongar country was a momentous occasion for Australian Indigenous people nationwide. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that Yagan contains images and voices of deceased persons.
The study guide to accompany Yagan provides information and suggestions for learning activities in Years 10 - 12. Age appropriate excerpts could be shown to students in Years 7 - 9. Yagan has relevance to units of work in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, Australian History, Cultural Studies, English, History and Media.
