    This was a very thoughtful and well-written introduction to the Aboriginal and Torres-strait islander culture.

    I found the concept of semi-nomadic interesting and I would like to note the term for this is “terra nullius”, latin for no ones land.

    By using the term nomadic continually it is trying to re-enforce the lie of ‘terra nullius’, to justify the theft of a nation and while the Mabo case established the heralded concept of Native Title rights as being a major advancement for the indigenous communities. Unfortunately, it was a special type of Native Title that unlike pre-existing and international recognised Native Title Rights that provided freehold title and mineral rights the Australian version was significantly diluted. The Australian version excluded freehold title, excluded mineral rights and the subsequent Native Title Act and the numerous amendments continue to dilute Native Title Rights to protect the resource sector (foreign shareholders profits and government royalties) and to ensure that third world living standards are maintained in a 1st world country. The truth is out there but no one is listening while the lie continues.
