Abstract

The history of the dispossession of the Mairremmener People is an analogue for the histories of indigenous peoples in all those lands seized by the British under the cloak of the ideology of imperialism and the conceit of the superiority of Western culture. In Van Diemen's Land in the years between 1803 and 1832, the Mairremmener People suffered the brunt of colonial expansion, and were its prime victims. Their history is the substance of this thesis.
