Summary

"Much of the attention paid to native title in Australia has focused on court proceedings and other legalities, but what does it actually mean to live with native title? This book presents the experiences of native title holders and the corporations they have established to look after their native title interests. The influence of the renowned High Court 'Mabo' case is such that there are already more than 100 Registered Native Title Bodies Corporate (RNTBCs) across Australia with responsibilities for about 18 percent of the continent. RNTBCs operate in a profoundly intercultural context, where "western" and indigenous laws are constantly interpreted and negotiated as part of generating a new suite of landholding and land management practices for contemporary Australia. Through seven case studies from the Torres Strait, Far North Queensland, the Kimberley and Central Australia, 'Living with native title' documents their experiences as well as the experiences of native title corporations that are parties to large mining agreements. Each case study is accompanied by a short update written immediately prior tp publication. The introductory chapters provide further information on the RNTBC regime and the RNTBC review and reform process, and other findings from AIATSIS's long-term research with PBCs. 'Living with native title' is the outcome of a three-year AIATSIS research project in partnership with the Minerals Council of Australia and the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations, with funding from the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs. The experiences of RNTBCs remain a significant research agenda for AIATSIS."--Back cover.
