They are part of the Kulin alliance of Aboriginal Victorian peoples. Later to be known as the Loddon River, then dubbed the Yarrayne by Mitchell, it was a name he somehow understood that the Aborigines associated with the river. There she is alone without a fire in the bush, and her feet described as being in a most dreadful state I think she will die the poor devil. I felt additional interest in this poor child, from the circumstance of her having suffered so much by the accident, that befell her while with our party, and which had not prevented her from now preferring our mode of living so much, that I believe the mother at length despaired of being ever able to initiate her thoroughly in the mysteries of killing and eating snakes, lizards, rats and similar food.

The picaninny is kidnapped away to a station ten miles distant’. George Augustus Robinson on 7 July 1841 described some of the infrastructure that had been constructed near Mount William: In mid summer, gatherings for ceremony and hunting took place at Mirraewuae, a marsh near Hexham rich with emu and other game.[2]. They formed indeed a miserable group, exhibiting, nevertheless, instances of affection and fidelity, creditable both to the human and canine species. Tarrengower’s anger eased and he just grumbled at this cheeky little volcano who was now just coughing and spluttering with no energy left at all.

All rights reserved. [5], They have a two class matrilineal system, with descent based on the wirran (yellow-tailed black cockatoo) and grugidj (sulphur-crested cockatoo or Long-billed corella white cockatoo) moieties.

It is likely the Djab wurrung were well aware of European colonisers from their communications with coastal tribes. In Mitchell’s later memoirs he obscures the reality of the abduction and his later action of separation, child stealing and dealing. Having resupplied, they started to head back towards Sydney, jettisoning the big boat near Mount Napier, increasing the mobility of the boat carriage and smaller boat across the swampy Western District volcanic plains. We have no record of what actually transpired from a Wiradjuri perspective. Turandurey was a Wiradjuri woman with a totally blind young daughter, Balandella, mainly referred to as the ‘Picaninny’. Verification card holders can report their take here, but first must login. As a precursor to the first physical invasion of their lands locally, the Dja Dja Wurrung people in central Victoria had experienced several waves of a deadly smallpox pandemic that the invaders had somehow introduced to the continent. [15], In the 1870s the Djab wurrung were largely dispersed to the reservations: the Hamilton mob to Lake Condah, the Wickcliffe people to Framlingham mission, and the Mount Cole people to Framlingham and Coranderrk station.

Clans intermarried with the Dja Dja Wurrung, Jardwadjali, Dhauwurd wurrung and Wada wurrung peoples.[2]. [17], The Brambuk National Park and Cultural Centre in Halls Gap is owned and managed by Jardwadjali and Djab Wurrung people from five Aboriginal communities with historic links to the Gariwerd-Grampians ranges and the surrounding plains. He used words that made the invasion of Dja Dja Wurrung lands and Australia more generally sound like a benign, bloodless coup. This account is based mainly around insights from original transcripts from Thomas Mitchell’s 1836 diary as well as those of Granville Stapylton, Mitchell’s second in command, published in 1986 in Stapylton with Major Mitchell’s Australia Felix Expedition 1836  edited by Alan Andrews. They had personalities, purpose, speech and they could think for themselves. Like other Kulin peoples, there are two moieties: Bunjil the eagle and Waa the crow. Their second transit was on their journey back to Sydney. There are only occasional brief mentions of what Stapylton calls ‘the two black gins and the picaninny’ until they absconded on the night they camped on the stream they called the ‘Yarrayne’, now known as the Loddon River. The other Jin (Kitty] returned this morning with her feet in a deplorable state. Their journey through the already densely populated, well watered and fertile volcanic country of the Dja Dja Wurrung in the upper Avoca and Loddon River catchments took them past Mount Greenock (near Talbot) into the Mammeloid Hills beyond Mount Beckworth and on to recross the Loddon River near present day Newstead. Putting aside the offensive language, the lack of compassion evident in their actions leaves me gobsmacked. ‘Pickaninny’ is a word applied originally by people of the West Indies to their babies and more widely referring to small children. Stapylton records Mitchell’s advice that ‘The Mother Jin stays with me [Stapylton] until I receive further directions respecting her’. When about to set out I observed that the widow ‘Turandurey’, who was to remain with Mr Stapylton’s party and the carts, was marked with white round the eyes (the natives’ fashion of mourning), and that the face of her child Ballandella was whitened also.

They had time to take a southern detour beyond Dja Dja Wurrung country to climb and rename Mount Macedon, the ‘Mount Wentworth’ of Hume, though not marked as such on Hume’s map.

The revised plan was for Stapylton and the rest of the party to remain there ‘for one fortnight in order to give time for the bullocks to refresh then to proceed on his track’.

[3], The Djabwurrung language shared 85 percent common vocabulary with Yartwatjali, 82 with Wemba-Wemba, 66% with Madhi Madhi and 68% with Letji-Letji.

Dja Dja Wurrung country is a cultural landscape that is more than just tangible objects; imprinted in it are the dreaming stories, Law, totemic relationships, songs, ceremonies and ancestral spirits, which give it life and significant value to Dja Dja Wurrung People. There is no mention of her again by Mitchell. One can only guess at the likely heartbreak involved in this tragic separation as both mother and daughter mourned their separation.
