Yidumduma Bill Harney: Bush Professor is an exciting retrospective celebrating the life work of Yidumduma Bill Harney, one of the last fully initiated men of the Wardaman people from the Northern Territory.

Now 85, Yidumduma grew up learning every aspect of Wardaman culture from his mother Ludi Yibuluyma and adopted father Joe Jomornji. Harney was also inspired by his well known biological father William E Harney to publish several books including ‘Born Under the Paperbark Tree’ .
