A.O. Neville orders the separation of three half-caste girls, Molly, Gracie, and Daisy, from their parents as part of the 1905 Aboriginal Act. This act institutionalized racism and confined Aboriginal people in camps until their race became extinct. Regarding the aboriginal children, the goal was to assimilate them into white culture and train them to be domestic servants over time.
