Abstract

This chapter explores the impact of the 2007 Northern Territory Intervention on the Aboriginal men and women affected by these 'emergency measures' through the eyes of one Aboriginal elder. The chapter commences with a brief look at colonisation and its impact on Aboriginal people and their connections to land. It goes on to demonstrate that military occupations and interventions are not necessarily something that only occur when one state occupies a separate territory: the Intervention is a case of an occupation of a nation within a nation.
