Tongerlongeter (16)

They now plunder houses in populous places

One observed

No longer confine their depredations to remote stock huts or isolated dwellings

Go away you white buggers, what business have you here

Emboldened

Ridiculed the idea of white men following them in the woods

Language – ‘parrawa’, ‘parrawa’ (go away)

Oyster Bay – Big River warriors

No longer confine their depredations to remote stock huts or isolated dwellings

Go away you white buggers, what business have you here

Emboldened

They have ceased to fear

Entertain but a mean opinion of the white people’s knowledge

Ridiculed the idea of white men following them in the woods
