Truganini description

Liberated from the tropes of tragedy that have dominated previous accounts, Cassandra Pybus’ biography of Nuenonne woman Truganini finally does justice to this remarkable woman. Posthumously and falsely named “the Last Tasmanian Aboriginal”, Truganini is revealed to be a woman of great strength, resilience and agency, a renowned swimmer, nimble negotiator, lover of nature and children, and master of adaptation. Inspired by her own family’s connection to Nuenonne country, Cassandra is joined by Ian Anderson to discuss Truganini’s life and legacy.
