"Australia’s Aboriginal peoples have been central to how anthropologists have historically thought about progress and difference. Tasmania’s Aboriginal peoples receive less attention, both in Australia and in discussions of global indigenous movements. Before and after their supposed extinction in 1876, they were considered the most primitive humans."
