In 1969 Iona and Peter Opie wrote in their book Children’s games in street and playground that gang stalking is a synonym for the children’s game Indians.
In 1975 this was mentioned in the Oxford English Dictionary.
This is the entry in the Oxford English Dictionary from 1989:

In 1993 Norma Cross and Eleanor White started to use the word gang stalking to describe stalking campaigns by multiple perpetrators. Eleanor White is a retired electronics engineer who used to work for the U.S. Army.
