Abstract: The article talks about the role of Indigenous executions, especially by public hangings, in South Australia and the role of race in the treatment of a capital offender. It is noted that sentencing of South Australian Indigenous people was more than a punishment and was used to terrorize Indigenous population regarding British colonization. It states that South Australian Parliament moved to abolish public executions in 1858, irrespective of race.
