This paper is concerned with a very violent incident that was carried out by the perpetrators of the Myall Creek Massacre after that massacre in 1838 and when the party was still on their killing spree. I apologise for the particular distress talking about such things may have for the Wirrayaraay peoples, for other Indigenous peoples and for women in particular but also others who may have experienced direct violence. It is very understandable that you would not want to read again the detail of such events. I do not see my decision to talk about such things as at all straightforward and I remain anxious about my ability to tread a path between ideas of testimony, wanting to write it differently and wanting to expand what writing can do for a hopeful postcolonialism.
