Unearthed - the Aboriginal Tasmanians of Kangaroo Island
 
(0 reviews)  

Aboriginal Tasmanian descendants are still living on Kangaroo Island today and this book is their story.

It is relatively well known that the Palawa aboriginal community of Tasmania is mostly descended from the Aboriginal Tasmanian women taken by sealers to the Bass Strait Islands in the early 19th century. But few people know that sealers also took Tasmanian women to Kangaroo Island, establishing a cross-cultural community before the settlement of South Australia.

Beginning in the sealing days, this book tells how they became successful farmers, but how many grew up unaware of their Aboriginal ancestry, and are still struggling to face questions of identity today.
