The Screen Guide

Badu Island (along with nearby Moa and Mabuiag) once had a feared reputation as an island of head hunters. Until the 1870s, when pearlers started to establish bases, warfare, turtle and dugong hunting were the main activities of the men here; by the early 1880s the islanders were becoming dependent on wages earned as lugger crew and missionaries converted the people. The people of Mabuiag Island had a reputation for hostility to outsiders until they were converted to Christianity in the early 1870s.
