British Parliamentary Report on the Aboriginals in New Holland & Van Diemen's Land 1837

Early 19th century map of Australia and New Zealand

This report tabled in the British House of Commons in 1837 is very telling on the attitudes and information received on the state of their colonies. The report for New Holland (now known as Australia) begins here:
'The inhabitants of New Holland, in their original condition, have been described by travelers as the most degraded of the human race ; but it is to be feared that intercourse with Europeans has cast over their original debasement a yet deeper shade of wretchedness.

First Nations Law Council

Sovereign Union First Nation Law Council

Ghillar Michael Anderson announces today that, after years of discussion and consultations with senior Law men and senior Law women, they have now founded the Wati Law Council in the Western Desert cultural block and, in the case of the Euahlayi Nation in the east of Australia, the Euahlayi Law Council. Discussions are continuing with other Nations’ ceremonially educated Law-holders.

'Over Cooked': Is Captain Cook the source of British sovereignty in Australia?

The story of Lieutenant James Cook and British Sovereignty over Australia has been overcooked. At no time on any of Cook's three voyages to the Pacific was he intending to go anywhere near New Holland. He did chart the east coast of New Holland in 1770, but that was not part of his Instructions. The whole story about Cook and his association with the claim of British Sovereignty over the lands now known as Australia is retrospective, rather than consistent with the events of the time. Cook's initial "mission" was to get to Tahiti to study the Transit of Venus, and to then look for the fabled Great Southern Land, Terra Australis. [node:read-more:link]

Colonial fraud against First Nations and Peoples: understanding 'non est factum'

Colonial law is a law that cheats all our Peoples out of our ownership of all our lands, water and natural resources and ownership of all of our native flora and fauna, which are our families through our Totemic Law rules.
Native Title laws keep us outside in the drought without shade and we are burning up, just like our native bush. The 'two bob black trackers' control all negotiations and dictate what they say our people should get and agree to. [node:read-more:link]

Sovereignty Never Ceded: Why Treaty with a State or Territory without self-determination

NT Treaty

These State and Territory Treaty processes are not focusing on the key issues that our Peoples have been marching for on the streets. Whether Australians like it or not there are two regimes operating today in Australia: The Law of the Land belonging to Sovereign First Nations and Peoples under our own Laws and customs and the imposed colonial system originating from Britain. As Nations and Peoples, we need to stand strong and firm in our commitment to get it right, to assert our sovereign rights. We owe it to our future generations. [node:read-more:link]
