Also known as the Forrest River Massacre, this was a historical massacre of the Oombulgarri people in northwestern Australia. Billy recounts a version of this story, in which he says a white man, Midja George, attacked a sleeping Aboriginal man, who killed Midja George in self-defense. The white residents of the nearby town retaliated, killing dozens of Aboriginal men, women and children.
