  • Epigraph: A note for the reader: August each year is the anniversary of the Coniston massacres, in which a police party led by Constable William Murray carried out reprisals against the Warlpiri people of Central Australia. Murray himself admitted to 17 killings. The official Board of Enquiry found 31. Later researchers estimate a conservative minimum of 70 murders over a six week period - men, women and children. Murray was exonerated.
