The indigenous people had lived in Australia for over 60,000 years.
Land was a fundamental component of their spirituality and identity. They had a special relationship with the land.
When the British first colonized Australia in January 1788 the continent was declared 'terra nulllius' meaning that the land belonged to no one.
The British took control of Australia from the indigenous people and formed their own government and legal system.
In the 1900's the indigenous Australians were the disadvantaged people in Australia. They were exploited, oppressed and given basic rights and freedoms. During the 1960's Aboriginal people joined movements and protests to claim their land rights. the Gurindji strike in 1966 is considered the beginning of the modern Aboriginal land rights.
In 1975, the labor prime minister handed the Gruindji land back to the indigenous people. This led to the Aboriginal Land Right Act in 1976 (Northern Territory) which enabled indigenous people to claim land according to their traditional ownership of the land
from bontu, this is so cool.
