This chapter contextualises crime and criminal justice in Australian colonial history. It maps the development of Aboriginal criminology in Australia and covers key themes that have disproportionately affected Indigenous peoples such as incarceration and deaths in custody. Finally, the authors reflect on research into contemporary Indigenous experiences, like Aboriginal English in the courtroom and state interventions.
