The focus of this chapter is Indigenous women’s experiences of settler colonial crime control, and the response of settler colonial criminal justice systems to the needs of Indigenous women. The chapter discusses in detail significant issues relating to Indigenous women’s engagement with settler colonial crime control, including ongoing increases in police contact and imprisonment. Employing critical Indigenous analysis of the Northern Territory Emergency Response implemented by the Australian Federal Government in 2007, this chapter demonstrates the intersectional foundations behind the significant rise in Indigenous women’s engagement with the criminal justice system, and the role played by the settler colonial state in their continued criminalisation.

Keywords:   indigenous women, settler colonial crime control, Northern Territory Emergency Response, imprisonment, settler colonial criminal justice
