Aboriginal land rights – policy.
(NAA: A5882, CO1179 PART 2)
The 1967 referendum led to a series of events which changed Australia and the Northern Territory. In 1976, the Australian Government enacted the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act after many decades of protest. But 40 years on, questions still arise as to whether land rights are the panacea, just part of the solution, or part of the problem.
Presented by Bob Beadman, a retired public servant of 43 years and now Chairman of the Northern Territory Grants Commission.
Presented by the National Archives of Australia in partnership with the Northern Territory Archives Service.
