Documentary by Spear Point Productions/Kelrick Martin (Documentary) James/Support When Lieutenant-Governor James Stirling established Western Australia's Swan River colony (later the city of Perth) in 1829, times were tough. Seed refused to grow, food was scarce, and the initially good relations between British settlers and local Indigenous Noongar people tragically spiraled out of control into a conflict over land and resources. Standing out during this period were the actions of a Noongar warrior named Yagan. Confused by the actions of the settlers and refusing to submit to their strange British laws, Yagan fought back against the colonizers, murdering a settler in retribution for the death of one of his family. His reputation grew quickly, and he was soon a wanted man. Tricked into being captured, Yagan was on the cusp of execution for his crimes when he was saved at the last minute by an enigmatic Scottish pastor named Robert Lyon. Lyon was a firm advocate for the rights of the Noongar people during this clash of cultures. He saw Yagan as the "William Wallace"
