Sydney cove book reading

Hey class,

We came across the Aboriginal word ‘warra, warra’, what does it mean? and why were they saying it when the convicts came off the boat?

    Hi Miss U,
    I found out what Warra means. I found that it meant man form the water. In the book they might of just repeated the word so it sounds like the aboriginal is in distress.
