Abstract

[Extract] Over the past few decades, key legal and political developments in Australia, and specifically in Northern Australia, have provided new propects for Indigenous peoples to gain recognition of their rights and responsibilities, and to play a greater role in natural resource use and management (NRM) decsions (Hill and Williams 2009). For Indigenous people, the kinds of opportunities being pursued and claims made reflect not only the centrality of their territories to their culture and identity, but also their aspirations to economic opportunities, and political representation and independence.
