Michael Howe (1787 – October 21 , 1818 ) was a famous bushranger in Tasmania , Australia .
Out of convenience, or to pursue a political agenda, the British colonisation of Australia is often termed a "white settlement" or a "white invasion." Such terms are inaccurate considering that Convicts of African extraction walked among those of British extraction.

Michael Howe was born in Pontefract, Yorkshire to Thomas and Elizabeth Howe, and it would appear that he was a man with some education.
Bushrangers , or bush rangers , originally referred to runaway convicts in the early years of the British settlement of Australia who had the survival skills necessary to use the Australian bush as a refuge to hide from the authorities. The term "bushranger" then evolved to refer to those who abandoned social rights and privileges to take up " robbery under arms " as a way of life, using the bush as their base. [ 2 ] These bushrangers were roughly analogous to British " highwaymen " and American Old West " road agents ," and their crimes often included robbing small-town banks or coach services.
