AN OLD TIME TRIBAL BATTLE
I can only assume that the Piallago Tribe were the forefathers of the modern day Ngambri People and the Monaro Tribe those of the modern day Ngarigu People.
The battle appears to have raged from Sutton, through Piallago, past Cuppacumbalong and off in to the mountains around the Nass in the ACT's South with the Ngambri being the eventual victors.
It is interesting to note from reading both the Ngambri and Ngarigu websites that the tribal boundaries of both Peoples are still contested today...
