This was contrary to the general intellectual conceptualisation and political ambience of the time, namely, that a Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody was essential in order to (1) investigate 'assisted' deaths by police or prison staff, and (2) end the wholesale incarceration of once nomadic hunter-gatherers for whom confinement was so severe that suicide was their only way out (Reser 1989).
The focus in this article on language and communication issues affecting Indigenous people in the criminal justice system should in no way negate the significance of many other issues, including racism towards Indigenous people in the community generally, and by people within the police force and the judiciary specifically (as highlighted, for example, in the National Report of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody 1991).
