Kabbala ( Macassan Boat )

This big boat came from overseas with Malaysian people. The boat landed at a place called Nalaberrberr on the beach. Aborigines saw the boat and came to meet these foreign men who gave them tomahawks, knives, flour, rice and maybe grog. The Aborigines thought that flour was a white clay so they put the flour on their bodies.
