Mannalargenna Day, December 4th, 2015. At tebrakunna at the Musselroe Wind Farm, Tasmanian Aboriginal families marked 180 years since the death of northeast clan leader Mannalargenna, on a day they hope will become a regular occasion in the state’s calendar. My friend and fellow north easterner Patsy Cameron invited me to join the occasion. I produced a story for ABC Local Radio and wrote about the day, too. This is a selection of images taken over the weekend by Aboriginal people from all over Tasmania and interstate descended from Mannalargenna.
