Summary

Examines the emergence of the concept of Aboriginal land rights between 1963 and 1971, in the context of the Yolngu petition and campaign against bauxite mining on Gove Peninsula; relationship with non-Aboriginal people; use of land and the concept of land ownership.

Notes

This book addresses the hitherto neglected role of non-indigenous activists, and challenges widely held understandings of the bark petition presented to federal parliament in 1963.
