Dadawarra from Mungullah, WA declares his sovereignty

Dadawarra from Mungullah, WA declares his sovereignty

Dadawarra says a 1,041 page Federal Court judgement on native title in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia seven years ago affirmed him as the sovereign ruler of the Commonwealth, extinguishing the Crown's sovereignty at the same time.

New research published also found one in three of the young people assessed had fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.
