An illustration of historical fiction created in response to the colonial image, Governor Davey’s Proclamation to the Aborigines (c.1830) in which an unknown artist depicts the English governance of Tasmania established around 1816. My response draws attention to the unlikely relationship between the colonial white settlers and the indigenous Aboriginal population; a coexistence that did not eventuate but rather resulted in the decimation of thousands of Aboriginal Tasmanians.
