being considered as a resident of a particular place. Invasion - The act of invading; the act of encroaching
upon the rights or possessions of another, trespass. Terra Nullius - Meaning unoccupied land
or land that hasnt been claimed yet, land with no owner. Do i think Australia was Terra Nullius ? No. Invasion.

there land, it was taken. two young boys escaped the white settlers &
two young girls lives were spared, but only to be raped. one of the worst recorded cases of Aboriginal murder Aboriginal resistance - key leader Pemulwuy Pemulwuy became such a hero that the Govener actually outlawed Pemulwuy and issued for for his death or capture.
