Buffalo Legends

Synopsis

‘The Legends’ were a group of men who formed the Buffaloes Football Club and championed fair play on and off the sporting field.

Many of the men came out of Darwin’s notorious Kahlin Compound where they had been placed because the law classified them as half-castes and removed them from their mothers.

The law, however, allowed them to play football and by the 1930s they were playing it better than anyone else in Darwin.

Buffalo Legends allows the descendants of the original Legends to tell us, with their own in-your-face humour and candour, how multiculturalism was established in Darwin long before the word was invented, and why it is still worth fighting for.
