What role did the fuzzy wuzzy angels play in World War 2?

The Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels were a tribe of Papua New Guinean native people nicknamed by the Australians because of their wild, woolly hair.
The Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels helped Australian soldiers during WWII in the 1942 battles against invading Japanese troops. They lived in the villages along the Kokoda Track and initially knew nothing of the war until Australian troops began moving through their area. They carried wounded out of the jungle, on stretchers and on their backs, and nursed them back to health where possible, at the risk of their own lives. They also carried supplies and equipment for the Australian troops. Stories have also emerged of these natives rescuing US airmen who were shot out of the sky. They evacuated allied troops from compromising situations during alerts of Japanese invasions, or hid them from advancing troops. Not only did they nurse the wounded back to health, but many Allied troops fell victim to the diseases of the tropical jungle, such as malaria - the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels also nursed them through that. The Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels were a caring, compassionate people who also suffered at the hands of the Japanese and, sadly, a few Australians, who plundered their villages. However, even after the war, they continued to help the Australian troops with rebuilding, carrying bridges and huts. As recently as June 2008, a motion was moved in the Australian Senate for the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels to be formally and officially recognised for their assistance to the Australian troops during the Kokoda campaign against the Japanese in World War II.
