The Todd Riverbed

[BREAK]

The dry Todd Riverbed that cuts through Alice Springs in central Australia is a racially marked and politically charged site. It was here that the racist killing of 33 year-old Kumantaye Ryder by five white men took place in 2009. It is also a site where a chilling sequence of violations, rapes, assaults, deaths and murders of Aboriginal women can be documented:

– 1999: Cheryl Anthea Braedon (21 years), Todd Riverbed NT 

– 2009: Kwementyaye Tilmouth (41 years) Aboriginal woman found dead in Todd Riverbed, NT

– 2011: 25 year old Aboriginal woman found dead in dry Todd Riverbed, NT

– 2013: Aboriginal woman found dead in dry Todd Riverbed, NT

– 2013: Aboriginal woman found dead in dry Todd Riverbed, NT
