The trial of Tshuanahusset: Fair or foul?
In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) about the 1868 murder of William Robinson and the subsequent conviction and hanging of an Aboriginal man named Tshuanahusset. Students then examine primary and secondary source documents to determine if there is sufficient evidence to recommend a retrial. Students present their recommendation and supporting evidence to the class.
