This comedy documentary is a six-part factual series presented by YouTube sensation Gabriel Willie (aka Bush Tucker Bunjie).
Gabriel loves his swears and insults – but he can only swear in English when there are hundreds of local First Nations' languages in Australia.
The series follows Gabriel as he goes on the hunt for "bad words" in First Nations languages to replace the white swear words he uses so freely. Along the way, Gabriel uncovers some remarkable truths on First Nations’ languages and cultures.
Join Gabriel as he travels the country to find the best and only truly local "bad" words.
