The First Tasmanians: Our Story
Printer Friendly Version

The First Tasmanians: Our Story presents and explores the history and culture of the Tasmanian Aboriginal people.

The exhibition will feature rarely seen original objects and examine climate change, astronomy and stories of creation, craft, technology and architecture.

The exhibition has been developed under the guidance of the QVMAG Aboriginal Reference Group and with the support of the Tasmanian Community Fund.

Follow The First Tasmanians: Our Story facebook page for more information.

The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery respects and acknowledges the Aboriginal people of Tasmania, their culture and customs.

This exhibition and accompanying publications may contain the names and images of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

Language use
Tasmanian Aboriginal language used in this gallery is selected from the earliest colonial records to reflect, where possible, words likely to have been spoken in northern localities around the time of European arrival. Where colonial records include several spellings, the most reliable is used. In some cases, however, the spelling preferred by a relevant artist or community member is used.
