Example text

Kuntaranta met Bossin as he was leaving his hut to go and check the sheep he had let out at first light. He reached in and brought out his musket. He propped it against the wall and stood close by. The Aborigine carried no spears but McLister had warned him not to relax his guard. Bossin listened as Kuntaranta again explained the hunger being experienced by his people. The words were impossible to understand but the meaning was clear. The white man felt relief that he had the means to help. He nodded and dragged out the small bag of flour left by McLister.

Upriver were the reportedly fierce Dapoori. The gathered food was shared that evening but it did little to ease everyone’s hunger. Gudap and Yudang ate theirs together and mourned for their 47 parents. The knowledge that they had not even been buried properly worried them. Nothing had been done to send their spirits happily on their way. Were their spirits even now angry with them for not having carried out the proper rituals? The children clung together. The night was long and made longer by the knowledge of the two white men close by.

Bossin would need to keep an eye on the sheep. Providing he yarded them at night he shouldn’t have much trouble. If trouble came, it would probably be from the blacks. McLister brooded on the confrontation of a few days earlier. After the confrontation, Kuntaranta and his fellow hunters had returned to the camp. They were angry but mindful of what they had heard of the whites further south. Very well, if they would not share for what they were doing to the land and its people, then the people must take that share.
