Yagan

Person

Who is Yagan?

Yagan was an Indigenous Australian warrior. From the Noongar people, he played a key part in early resistance to British settlement and rule in the area surrounding what is now Perth, Western Australia. After he led a series of burglaries and robberies across the countryside, in which white settlers were killed, the government offered a bounty for his capture, dead or alive. A young settler, William Keats, subsequently shot and killed him. Yagan's execution figures in Aboriginal folklore as a symbol of the unjust and sometimes brutal treatment of the indigenous peoples of Australia by colonial settlers. He is considered a hero by the Noongar.
