Summary
Paper outlines the Queensland governments child welfare practices towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from 1865 to 1990; specific laws are discussed which resulted in removals from families and placements in institutions; Vincent Ryan is cited as a case study; since 1965 state government departments were established to deal with child welfare and juvenile justice; Aboriginal children were over- represented in institutions which led to the child placement principle of the National Party government whereby Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children be placed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island caregivers
