Although a terrible pest to the colony, he was a brave and independent character.
— Governor Philip Gidley King on Pemulwuy

Pemulwuy (also rendered as Pimbloy, Pemulvoy, Pemulwoy, Pemulwy or Pemulwye, or sometimes by contemporary Europeans as Bimblewove, Bumbleway or Bembulwoyan) was an Aboriginal Australian man born around 1750 in the area of Botany Bay in New South Wales. He became the kurdaticha, or ritual executioner, of his tribe. Pemulwuy would hunt for meat and trade it with the colonists in exchange for goods.

He later convinced the Eora, Dharug and Tharawal tribes to join him in his campaign against the British colonizers. From 1792 started to raid several settlements. Eventually, he had an encounter with the first black bushranger John Caesar, who managed to crack his skull, leaving the Aboriginal critically injured.

In March 1797, Pemulwuy led a group of aboriginal warriors, estimated to be at least 100, in an attack on a government farm at Toongabbie. Though he was shot and captured during the attack he managed to escape the hospital he was kept in.

On June 2, 1802, his luck finally ran out as he was shot by a blinded British sailor Henry Hacking. His son, Tedbury, would continue his campaign until his own brutal death in 1810.

Expert's Opinion[]

While Pemulwuy was superior leader and tactician, Montezuma's cotton armor, weapons and troops were superior to Pemulwuy, bare in mind that the obsidian weapons are more devastating than the regular stone.
