For years prior to and following the significant work of the Australian National Committee on Violence (NCV), the subject of Australian Indigenous people and violence has attracted intense focus and debate. Some two and a half decades ago, the NCV report (1990, p. 165) stressed the need to understand the complex nature of the causes of violence in contemporary Indigenous communities. Yet debates continue to be dominated by colonising discourses of pathology, tribalism and barbarity, or simplistic interpretations of the impact of colonialism, which is usually reduced to frontier violence.
