'Australian Rules Football is more than a game for Aboriginal people...' So says Bill Dempsey MBE, himself a football legend, who narrates this story of a group of men who knocked down the barriers of racism on the sporting field. On the way they established a way of life based on tolerance, respect and an ethic of making your own fun whatever obstacles are placed along the path. 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.
