Family violence, child sexual assaults, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide… These are issues plaguing some Indigenous communities. But is the answer to shut them down?
Trigger Warning: this post deals with child sexual abuse, violence and suicide.
Stella Alberts was a daughter of the Stolen Generations.
As a child, she was taken from her mother and moved to an Anglican Mission.
She grew up there, and when it was closed, chose to return to her lands.
Sadly, this town would come to disintegrate into an infamous hotbed of crime, alcohol abuse, suicide and child sexual abuse.
