A Crying Shame
Western Australian legislation in the 1900s allowed extraordinary intervention into the lives of Aboriginal families. Under the Aborigines Act 1905 (WA), AO Neville was the legal guardian of EVERY Aboriginal child in the state. He had the legal right to remove ANY child away from their mother and father, often placing them into so-called “homes” for Aboriginal kids. These homes became a hotbed of abuse and trauma that has, in many cases, been passed down from generation to generation.
