When Jack Dale was a small boy he would see Aboriginal men being chained to a boab tree whenever the local gaol was full.

Referred to as the ‘Grand Old Man of the Kimberley’, tribal elder Jack Dale is highly respected as both a custodian of ceremonial ‘Law’ and for his skill as a bushman. The son of a hard-living Scottish father and a Ngarinyin mother, Dale spent his earliest years wandering the bush tracks of the Kimberley.
