The Story

In 1800 there may have been 20,000 Aborigines living on Tasmania.

Three generations later the last black woman on the island died. Genocide? Yes, but not always intentional.

This poignant story tells of the destruction of that ancient people and depicts some of the many facets that led to the tragedy.

In particular it highlights the character of the white man trusted by the Aborigines, whose character flaws accelerated their destruction.
