Pemulwuy Lesson

"This lesson looks at an early example of conflict between the Aboriginal People of the Sydney region and the European settlers. Pemulwuy originally worked with the settlers by hunting for them but food became even more scarce and conflict arose between farmers and the traditional custodians who had been displaced from their land. Pemulwuy then emerged as an activist, leading raids to obtain food and engaging in paybacks for wrongs committed against his people. He avoided capture and, despite injury, continued as a warrior and leader for 12 years before finally being shot and killed in 1802."
