The Kulin led by William Barak is a custom civilization by Colonialist Legacies. The original mod was created by Hiram.

This mod requires Brave New World. 



The Kulin Nation is an alliance of five groups of indigenous Australians, whose territory is located in central Victoria, Australia on the south-eastern coast of the continent. The Kulin Nation includes the Woiwurrung, the Boonrwrung, the Wathauruung, the Daungwurrung, and the Dja Dja Wrung.

William Barak[]

William (or Beruk) Barak is the last of the traditional elders (or ngurungaeta) of the Wurundjeri-william clan. This clan was part of the nation of Woiwurrung, one of five nations in the Kulin alliance - the original inhabitants of what is now the state of Victoria, Australia. While he was never properly inducted into the clan after the city of Melbourne was settled, Barak nonetheless went on to become a strong elder for the tribe for nearly 30 years. In that time, he became a powerful spokesman on behalf of his people, successfully negotiating settlement after settlement with the Victorian government, and ultimately became the source of much of our knowledge about Aboriginal peoples in southeastern Australia.

Dawn of Man[]

Hail William Barak, Ngurungaeta of the Wurundjeri tribe and leader of the Kulin Nation! In your life you were a stoic fighter for social justice for all indigenous people from the Melbourne region. As an artist, your works are highly prized even to this very day. Folklore has it that you were present at the signing of the treaty with British colonisers. This historic occasion resulted in the founding of Melbourne, one of Australia's greatest cities. In your life you successfully negotiated positive outcomes for your people and were a highly respected leader with high standing amongst both Aborigines and early settlers alike.
