Summary

"The Wangkangurru Land Claim No. 156 is a traditional land claim .... Strictly speaking, the claim is part of a traditional land claim, the Simpson Desert Land Claim No. 41, which was received in the office of the Aboriginal Land Commissioner on 19 February 1980. Land Claim No. 41 was subject to six separate applications to amend, the last of which was received in the office of the Aboriginal Land Commissioner on 1 May 1996. The details of the other amendments to claim No. 41 are not material to this report. ... By amendment of 1 May 1996, this square area of land was made the subject of a separate claim from Land Claim No. 41, named the Wangkangurru Land Claim." - p. 1.
