This chapter examines the relationship between colonial humanitarianism and indigenous agency in the early nineteenth century. It demonstrates the Djadja Wurrung was mobilizing exactly the politics from the late 1830's to the 1860's. The concept of 'humanitarian space' has become an explicit focus of discussion among humanitarian agencies. Spaces such as the mission and protectorate station were intended to provide refuge from the catastrophic effects of colonization for indigenous peoples, and resources for the reconstruction, in specific ways, of indigenous society. After a long period of relative neglect, there has recently been a revival in the historiography of the protectorate that was established in the Port Phillip District in 1838. Munangabum's story is bound up with the historical geographies of violence between squatters in the London District. Munangabum, Beernbarmin and Ellen each utilized the co-created humanitarian space in varying ways. The transimperial networks of humanitarianism that manifested them locally as Edward Stone Parker's humanitarian space served one of the projects.
