Join Allan Mansell for a yarn around the MACq 01 fireplace as he shares stories of his life as a First Nations man of Tasmania. From his family childhood as the last of the nomads travelling throughout lutruwita (Tasmania), his time on Mutton Bird Island, and then his experience as part of the stolen generation.
Allan is an engaging storyteller of what was, what is, and what can happen. Guests can hear how the First Nations Peoples lived on the land of nipaluna (Hobart), the devastating conflict and influence of colonisation, and the meaning of the nearby Crowther Statue to Aboriginal people.
Allan is passionate about sharing the history and heritage of Tasmanian Aboriginal culture. This is an opportunity to forge a deeper understanding of Tasmania’s past and connection to the land where MACq 01 Hotel stands.
This experience will be available from January 20, 2024. Held fortnightly on Saturday afternoons, bookings are strongly recommended via MACq01 team.
