Janjarri: The Little People of Northern Australia

Amongst the hills in which my caravan resides are a small tribe of quite short people, janjarri, who've avoided modern contact to this day...

Who is alive now who might have seen this folk? No less than Old Man Geoff Guest. Check out the feature in The Australian by Nicolas Rothwell: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/arts/review/in-search-of-the-indigenous-little-people-of-northern-australia/news-story/4b6a79f0661a7ed0c55ae00e29fb119a

The ghosts of the northern country!
