Migration of the Kurnai Ancestors
When Mr McAlpine first went to
Port Albert in the year -.
There was a man older than
“Morgan” who described himself
as the “father” of all the blackfellows
west of the Albert River. He was the
headman of the Kut-wut Kurnai.
He stated that the black fellow
came from the west from a
country where there were great
numbers of blacks. This old man’s
name was Mŭl-a-ba.
When the Port Albert and Tarraville
+ Alberton Blacks were frightened
at being attacked by those from
the Lake or about Sale they
used to take refuge in Wilsons
