Native Title in the ILUA Area
The Nyangumarta and Karajarri People had their native title rights recognised over about 2000 sq kilomteres of land in Hunter & Ors v State of Western Australia [2012] FCA 690. Both exclusive and non-exclusive native title rights were recognised in the area. This ILUA was negotiated as part of the consent determination to recognise the non-native title interests of the Mandora Pastoral Lease.
