Summary The issue of Aboriginal land rights in Australia has existed for over 200 years, and the process still has some way to go. Why is land so important to Aboriginal people's history and beliefs? What is the difference between 'land rights' and 'native title'? This book focuses on the history of the land rights movement, and the ongoing process of native title determination - Mabo, the Native Title Act 1993, Wik, the Native Title Amendment Act 1998 - how have these legal landmarks affected native title claims? What are the rights of indigenous Australians, pastoralists, mining companies and governments? What actually occurs in the native title determination process?
