During Tasmania’s gruesome Black War of 1823-31, Tongerlongeter led the most effective Aboriginal resistance campaign in Australian history.
Tongerlongeter was the lynch pin that held his people together in the face of apocalyptic invasion. But while his achievements rival those of any Victoria Cross recipient, he is buried in an unmarked grave on Flinders Island.
In Tongerlongeter, acclaimed historians Henry Reynolds and Nicholas Clements retrieve one of Australia’s greatest war heroes from historical obscurity.
Henry and Nick will be joined in conversation by Professor the Honourable Kate Warner.
Join them at Town Hall.
