First Nations are Water Owners, Not Stakeholders

Water is life

Ghillar, Michael Anderson, asserts that First Nations are owners of water, not just stakeholders and promotes the callout for the 'Water is Life National Gathering' in Canberra on 12 and 13 February 2019. After the massive fish kills in Menindee Lake he demonstrates with a 2019 image from Google Earth that there is still plenty of water just southwest of Menindee Lake, in the Tandou cotton farm, which had a bumper crop this year and has just planted another. This is after selling its water licence for $78 million for an environmental water buyback in 2017 and not being charged for its final year of water allocation. [node:read-more:link]

How Native Title backfires – Big Time

How Native Title backfires – Big Time

In the last two years I have been inundated with complaints from First Nations Peoples throughout Australia about the operations of Native Title Services organisations, that are supposed to represent First Nations' interests, only to find the opposite is happening. The bulldozing of homes on 1 July 2018 in the marginalised Mallingbar community on Yawaru country at Kennedy Hill, Broome, Western Australia, to make way for a tourist lookout, is one of the latest examples. The demolition at Mallingbar, in the name of economic development, began the day after the end of the National Native Title Conference that was held at Cable Beach [node:read-more:link]

Kimberley Land Council (KLC & agencies) wrong about Sovereignty

Aboriginal Land Councils - Government Troopers

While the Kimberley Land Council (KLC) and the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) convene the Native Title conference in Broome, hosted by the Yawuru People, Ghillar, Michael Anderson shines another light on the KLC and its agencies' agenda.
The Elders are saying that people keep coming and saying to us: 'You GOTTA come to these meetings. You HAVE TO sign these documents and you HAVE TO come to the Native Title hearings when the KLC comes'. [node:read-more:link]
