In June 2007, the then Howard Government ordered the Northern Territory National Emergency Response also known as the NT Intervention; a range of measures introduced to address allegations of child sexual abuse and social dysfunction in NT Aboriginal communities. The catalyst for the policy was the release of the NT Governments “Little Children are Sacred” Report. 10 years on, reporter Elliana Lawford travelled to the small Aboriginal community of Mutitjulu, one of the 70 communities impacted by the Intervention, where she spoke with members of the community to find out how the Intervention affected their lives, what's changed and their hopes for the future.
