Summary
This is an overview of two Palawa Aboriginal people of Tasmania, Australia - Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheener. They were the first two men to be (officially) executed in Melbourne on 20th January 1842. They were Indigenous freedom fighters who took up arms against the colonisers and paid the ultimate price for defending First Nations people against the invasion of their lands and the genocide of their people. Tunnerminnerwait, Maulboyheener, and three women Pyterruner, Truganini and Planobeena were among 16 Tasmanian Aborigines who were brought to Melbourne in 1839 by the protector of Aborigines, George Augustus Robinson., to "civilise" the Victorian Aborigines
