In June 2007, the Howard government ordered the Northern Territory National Emergency Response also known as the NT Intervention. It included 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 government's Little Children are Sacred Report. Ten years on, reporter Elliana Lawford travelled to the small Aboriginal community of Mutitjulu, just 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 has changed and what their hopes are for the future.
