The Gurindji are one of several hundred distinct Indigenous People in Australia. The Gurindji live in northern Australia, 460 km southwest of Katherine in the Northern Territory’s Victoria River region.
The Gurindji are most well known for leading the Gurindji Strike in 1966. Every August since then, a large celebration is held at Kalkarinji to mark the anniversary of the strike and walk-off. Known as Freedom Day, people gather from many parts of Australia to celebrate and re-enact the walk-off.
