And so, the video...
Wyndradyne (Wiindhurradaany) was a great warrior of the Wiradjuri Nation in their war against the invading British. The first tune tells of his march over the Blue Mountains for peace talks. The second tune is named for Pemulwuy, the Darug warrior and Cleverman who was known to be impervious to bullets, and escaped capture from the British by transforming himself into a crow, and flying away through the bars of the lockup.
