The History Of a man named Arabanoo.


arabanoo
In the year 1606 a Dutchman Willem Jansz and his ship Duyfken explored the western coast of Cape York Peninsula they were the first Europeans to have contact with Australian. aboriginal people. There were clashes between the two groups.
In the same year a Spaniard named Luis Vaez De Torres sailed through Torres Strait.

About ninety one years after an English man named William Dampier Visited the west cost of australia.

It was'nt until another 500 years or so later that Captain James cook discovered australia so I guess you could say he wasnt the first to find the wide spread lands of australia.

Born in 1758 arabanoo was soon to be discovered by the Europeans as a great find. arabanoo was clothed by the Europeans in their clothes and taken on board to work for them as a slave killing off each and every one of his people one by one.

After months of straggeling to survive do to the traumatic screams and cries of his people. One day arabanoo finally woke up to the hurt inside and discovered that it was not right for him to be doing what he was doing. It was not right to be one of the enimies people slowly cutting off the cerculation to the australian aboriginals for several generations of history if not for iternity.

But little did the Europeans know arabanoo was waiting for the one moment in time where he would set his people free from harm. Arabanoo had a plan to free his people and make the white people see the wrong in what they we're doing.

With pemulwuy by his side on the journey to free the aboriginie people his plan of freedom worked. Right beneath the noses of the white people every night when the white people had gone to sleep arabanoo would sneak out onto the top deck steal the map and try and discover a plan. One night long after the white people had all gone to bed arabanoo snuck out once again only this time he had discovered that pemulwuy had been waiting on the shore for him to come and talk. From just after sunset to sun-up every day they would talk to try and discover the right way of attack. So the next day arabanoo took the white people on shore into the camp where pemulwuy and his tribe were waiting pationtly to attack when the white people least expected it.

As the white men trailed slowly behind arabanoo they had no idea there was a battalion of aboriginals waiting to attack to clam back what was rightfully theirs. Slowly they got closer and closer until they were right outside the door to pemulwuy's humpy(house). pemulwuy getting anxious and his people silently waiting for their orders to attack. Suddenly the aboriginie's jumped out from the shadows leaping in every direction the war had broken out and it was feircem enough to knock out generations with a single blow.

At the heart of the battle between the aboriginals and the white people Pemulwuy was visously attacking the white captains etc from every possible angle. If it wasnt for the contacts between Arabanoo and Pemulwuy the proseedings of the white people's hope's to take over the wide spread lands of australia would never be accomplished well aleast not by the Europeans at this point in time.

Little Did Pemulwuy & Arabanoo brothers in battle know that they had only wiped out a small amount of the Europeans convict population.
