The Bardi people are the Indigenous Australians from the area north of Broome and parts of the Dampier Peninsular in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.[1]

Djarindjin, Lombadina and One Arm Point[2] are three Bardi communities in the area. [3] [4] [5] [6]

Bardi used to live on Sunday Island. There was a UAM mission there in 1940s. [7] [8]

Playwright and musician Jimmy Chi has Bardi ancestry, as do many Aboriginal people who live in and around Broome today.[9]

The Kooljaman resort at Cape Leveque is run by Bardi people.
