Banjo Clarke, "Wisdom Man" - Aboriginal Elder
Over 27-years, Banjo Clarke told the story of Aboriginal traditions which include caring for the land, taking only what you need, sharing with others and sensing a deep connection to each other and one's elders.
Once published, the story became an Australian best-seller entitled, "Wisdom Man Banjo Clarke as told to Camilla Chance". The book is now in it's second edition from Penguin.
Banjo lived from 1922-2000 and his funeral was the largest of any ever held in Warrnambool, Australia. His advice was even sought by the former Prime Minister of Australia in addition to many others. Shane Howard (www.shanehoward.com.au), a well known Australian musician said, "Banjo was in the business of saving lives on a daily basis."
Here is rare video of his story in his own words, a segment of a larger video based on "Wisdom Man" that is coming soon.
