Episode 36 of 69 episodes

The third program in Encounter's archive series. In January 1988, Australia was getting started on its Bicentenary celebrations - but in indigenous communities, many were wondering just what it was that they were supposed to be celebrating. This program visits the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, and hears reflections from local indigenous people on 200 years of trauma and triumph.
