Aborigines Protection Act NSW and the breaking up of Aboriginal families. This Act empowers NSW authorities to implement two methods of dispersing Aborigines: the closing of reserves and the taking away of children from Aboriginal parents in order to bring them up in institutions such as Cootamundra Girls’ Home and Kinchela Boys’ Home. The Act establishes the Aborigines Protection Board (APB). This becomes the NSW Aborigines Welfare Board in 1943. The APB administers government policy, dictates where Aboriginal people can live and work, their freedom of movement, their personal finances and their child rearing practices. It controls Aboriginal lives until the 1960s, pursuing policies that contribute to the destruction of Aboriginal families and society by separating children from their parents. These children become The Stolen Generations.
