Bill Onus (1906-1968) was an Aboriginal activist and promoter of Aboriginal culture. He was the person who organised the “Aboriginal Moomba: out of the dark” for the 1950 celebrations and suggested the word “Moomba” for the annual Melbourne celebration. When Harry Belafonte visited Melbourne in 1958 he was filmed learning to throw a boomerang outside the Belgrave shop.
