Aboriginal bone pointing
"Pointing the Bone" by Aussie

The white overseer's house sat menacingly above the aborigines' camp in the grove of eucalyptus trees.
Every night the overseer would send for a young girl. The mothers' keened as their young daughters trudged up the hill to pleasure the white man's appetites. The black men were chained to trees.

When the white man had sated his lust he sent the dishevelled teenager back down the hill.
Willaway, medicine man had a plan. The peaceful elder called on ancient magic. He needed to stop the rapes.
When the overseer came to camp, Willaway pointed the bone. The rapist fell dead.
