Title: From Pluralism to Territorial Sovereignty: The 1816 Trial of Mow-watty in the Superior Court of New South Wales
Authors: Ford, Lisa
Salter, Brent
Issue Date: 1-Oct-2008
Publisher: Indigenous Law Journal
Abstract: In this paper we examine the trial of Mow-watty: the first Indigenous person to be sentenced to death by a Superior Court in Australia. By reviewing the Mow-watty trial, and the efforts of Governor Lachlan Macquarie to bring order and law to New South Wales' frontiers in 1816, we argue that it is possible to trace the remnants of an older understanding of sovereignty in empire and the rudiments of a new “territoriality” in the Colony of New South Wales.
