Summary
An Overview of Yagan who was born around 1803 [?] and died sometime in July 1833. He was a Noongar leader and the chief of the Upper Swan tribe, which called him Boolgoot. He also was the son of Midgegooroo, the leader of the Beeliar tribe, a territory on the southern side of the Canning River and within the greater metropolitan area. Yagan was a resistance fighter and remembered only for his brief interaction with the British settlers who began taking up land at the Swan River in 1829. In the conflict that followed, Yagan was both feared and admired by Europeans as a patriot fighting for his land. In today’s Noongar community, Yagan is an iconic figure in the fight for Noongar rights and recognition. Ken Colbung has conducted the leading role in the England search for Yugan’s skull and it came home with a Noongar escort in 1997. The reburial of Yagan’s head was celebrated on the 10th July 2010. Even though Yagan's documented history is limited to the years 1831 to 1833, more books, articles are produced based on him than any other Indigenous Australian of the 19th Century
