Lia Pootah

Published: May 8, 2011, Author: JayTaber

Tasmanian Aboriginal culture is a heritage that extends through three ice ages. As a result of missionaries and governments that knew an extinct race solves all problems of land alienation, all their ancestors died in shame, sorrow and pain forbidden to practice their way of life. The aboriginal Lia Pootah people of Tasmania believe no reconciliation can happen without education. Toward that end, they have a website where educational services about their aboriginal heritage are available.

Chief George Manuel Memorial Indigenous Library

The library is dedicated to the memory of Secwepemc Chief George Manuel (1921-1989), to the nations of the Fourth World and to the elders and generations to come.
