In 1932 Japanese pearl fishermen came ashore in the Caledon Bay area of Arnhem Land and raped several Yolngu women. In retaliation they were fatally speared by Yolngu men who were gaoled and sentenced to death. Anthropologist Thomson convinced the government to set up a commission to investigate and subsequently they were released.
