Summary
The story of Black survival in Tasmania amidst the continuing suppression of history and culture, it challenges skin-deep assumptions about Aboriginality today, more than a hundred years after the Tasmanian Aborigines were declared extinct, their decendents set out to reclaim the lost graves of their ancestors on Flinders Island in Bass Strait, the neglected burial site at Wybalenna which in the 1830's was Australia's first segregated Reserve.
