Marcia Hewitt (2006) indicates that Aboriginal people had to follow the policies of these institutions where they lost their freedom of independence, choice and mobility. Many children were separated from their families. European colonization devastated the whole kinship infrastructure and the right to use bush food which was excellent for the Aboriginal health (Marcia Hewitt, 2006).
Later than going through a long trauma the aboriginal population in Australia is receiving now privileges. In December 1992 the Aboriginal and Torres straight Islander Social Justice Commissioner was introduced by the federal parliament. It was in response to the severe social and economic disadvantage which the Indigenous Australians were facing. Its important role is to protect the right of indigenous people and provide them support and strength which really can help in supporting them (Dr William Jonas).
