THE GAMILARAAY 500?
Before Major Nunn set out on his evil killing spree in my sacred Gamilaraay lands. He was given orders by the governor of the time to get rid of the black problem in the Gamilaraay Nation.
Over several weeks as he was heading up Mt Kaputar he heard loud roars and thought it was thunder.
When he kept looking up he could see all these flickering lights and thought it was lighting and then the sky turning dark, which he thought were rain clouds.
When he and his men had reached the top of Mt Kaputar and looked out over the land he could not believe what lay before him.
The loud roar that he thought was thunder was the Gamilaraay 500 + who where being led as always by our brave Gamilaraay woman banging on there shields and possum skin drums.
He and his men could also see that the flickering lights that they thought was lightning was the many fires still burning through the night.
What he thought were rain clouds was nothing more than the 500 + proud strong Gamilaraay warriors and our woman dancing and all singing in unison the mighty fighting dance with dust flying high over their heads.
After witnessing this Major Nunn and his men took off back to Singleton.
Then several weeks had passed and our mob began thinking that this evil man was not coming back into our sacred lands.
So the Gamilaraay 500 + had all dispersed and went back to their clan areas.
But then this evil man came back several months later with more troopers and committed genocide on our then small band of unsuspecting proud brave warriors, beautiful strong woman and children and this is what is now known as Slaughterhouse Creek
