Queen Elizabeth II leaves complex legacy for Aboriginal Australians

Quick Summary

Some are grappling with how to celebrate her life while also acknowledging trauma from colonisation.

Prof O'Sullivan says: "I don't have a lot of time for people who want to celebrate the idea of somebody passing away.

When she looks at it now, she sees a sovereign standing in front of a man who dedicated his life to having the sovereignty of his own people recognised."And he died waiting for that recognition," the Whadjuk Noongar woman tells the BBC.
