After the Native Title Act was introduced, WA introduced 'complementary' State legislation, which was a template for corruption to rob the Peoples of their lands, waters and natural resources.

Evidence of 9,000-year-old stone houses found on Pilbara island

Archeologists working on the Dampier archipelago off Australia’s north-west coast have found evidence of stone houses dating back 9,000 years – to the end of the last ice age – building the case for the area to get a world heritage listing.

A team from UWA are exploring the Dampier Archipelago (Murujuga). What they have uncovered so far is astounding, and pushes back the known occupation of this place to before the Last Ice Age. [node:read-more:link]
