A Special Place for Jimmy James

Jimmy James (the second) was a famous blacktracker, who was born around 1910 and belonged to the Pitjantjatjara people. He moved to the Riverland in the 1940's and took his name from his equally famous father-in law. He became a legend in his own lifetime when he was used extensively by the Police forces in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and the Northern Territory, to track felons, escapees and missing people. Jimmy passed away in 1991, and is buried at Gerard, the Aboriginal settlement near Winkie. The monument is sculptured out of two large slabs of black granite which are finely polished and engraved with images of birds and animals - a part of Jimmy's spirit world.
