Truganini was the daughter of Mangana, chief of the Bruny Island people. A survivor of The Black Wars that accompanied European settlement in Tasmania, her life epitomises the story of colonial encounters in Tasmania, the clash of two disparate cultures and the resistance and survival of indigenous Tasmanians. After losing her mother, her sister and her prospective husband at a young age, all of them the victims of colonial violence, Truganini worked hard in the early 1830s to unify what was left of the indigenous communities of Tasmiania. An intelligent, energetic and resourceful woman, she worked with white authorities to protect other survivors of The Black Wars who had been forcibly removed from their homelands. In 1830 George Augustus Robinson, a Christian missionary was hired to round up the rest of the indigenous population and he settled them on Flinders Island. Truganini and her husband, Woorrady, helped Robinson in this venture in the hope that removing them would protect them from further violence. Unfortunately, the shock of resettlement, combined with the unsanitary conditions the people were forced to live in, proved fatal and the resettlement program did not work.The result was the virtual annihilation of the one hundred or so people left - mainly due to malnutrition and illness. Truganini went with Robinson to Port Phillip in 1839 where a similar settlement was attempted with mainland nations, again with disastrous results. This time, having learnt from the Tasmanian experience, Truganini joined with the Port Phillip people when they resisted Robinson's plans but she was captured and sent back to Flinders Island. In 1856 there were only a few remaining indigenous survivors left in Tasmania, Truganini among them, who were taken to Oyster Bay. By 1873, except for Truganini, all of the people taken there had died. Truganini was moved to Hobart where she died in 1876. She had no known descendants. Even in death she was not left in peace. Her skeleton was on display in the Tasmanian Museum from 1904 to 1907. It was not until 1976 that her remains received a proper burial. Aboriginal rights workers cremated Truganini and spread her ashes on the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, close to her birthplace. Despite being labelled as such for many years, Truganini was not the 'last Tasmanian Aborigine', as the population of mixed descent Aboriginal people living in Tasmania readily attests to. Nevertheless, the story of her life and death remains immensely important, not only as a symbol of the plight of indigneous Australians, but as an example of the insenstivity of museum practices.

    Summary: Truganini (Trugernanner) (1812-76), Tasmanian Aborigine, was born near D'Entrecasteaux Channel in Van Diemens Land. After her people had been brutally disrupted by European sealers, whalers and timbergetters, Truganini married Woorraddy at Bruny Island in 1829. The couple helped G.A. Robinson to collect the remnants of her people, in order to protect them from European violence, and later joined him at the settlements of Flinders Island (1835) and Port Phillip (1838). Truganini moved to Oyster Cove in 1847 and resumed her traditional lifestyle. She moved to Hobart in 1874 and died at the Dandridge family home two years later. After burial, and against her previously stated wishes her body was exhumed (1878) by the Royal Society of Tas for Scientific Research. Her skeleton was placed on display at the Tas Museum (1904-47). One hundred years after her death, her bones were cremated and the ashes scattered on the D'Entrecasteaux channel. Truganini is thought to have been the last full blood Aborigine to have lived in Tasmania.
