Native Title & Statutory Land Rights
Native title is unique because there is a fundamental difference between native title and other land rights.
This difference was identified in the High Court's Mabo judgment, which found that native title is not granted by the Crown, but has its source in a different legal system - the laws and customs of Indigenous peoples.
By contrast, "statutory land rights" are created by Australian government legislation.
And, although they recognise the rights of Indigenous peoples to own and control their traditional lands, it is government which determines the areas to be made available to claim, and the conditions under which a grant may be made.
