The 1928 Coniston Massacre is just one of Australia’s notorious mass killings of Aboriginal people.
Led by Constable George Murray, up to 170 men, women and children were killed over a three month period in the Northern Territory.
Historian Liza Dale-Hallet has a very personal connection to the story. Constable Murray is her great-uncle.
She joins Lorena Allam, Indigenous Affairs editor for The Guardian Australia to discuss how Australia can best grapple and deal with this brutal history.
