The Last Tasmanian

"I came across this documentary about two weeks ago. It's the most detailed documentary on the Tasmanian genocide ever made." - Xavier James

The Tasmanians were a distinct people, isolated from Australia and the rest of the world for 12,000 years. In 1803, British colonization began and in 1876, Truganini died. She was the last full-blood and tribal Tasmanian Aboriginal. Within her one lifetime, a whole society and culture were removed from the face of the earth.
