The leader of a tribe of Aborigines, the Nyungar. Kundilla has heard stories of the aggression and brutality of white invaders, but when he witnesses white British soldiers treating his fellow tribesmen with respect, he assures his people that they have nothing to fear. Pilkington uses Kundilla’s point of view to convey what she imagines might have been an Aboriginal man’s perspective on racism and colonialism before colonizers had fully occupied Aboriginal land.
