Why did the Gurindji people walk off the Wave Hill Pastoral Station in 1966?

Why did the Gurindji people walk off the Wave Hill Pastoral Station in 1966?

In 1966 Vincent Lingiari, a Gurindji Elder led his people in imposing a strike on any work at the Vestey's Company property, Wave Hill Pastoral Station. The initial concerns were extremely poor wages and living conditions. The case developed into a legal case on Native Title. The Gurindji people wanted back their land. It was a case of traditional law vs. Australian law. This source-based activity is designed for students of the NSW History K-10 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum.

First Australians Episode 7: We Are No Longer Shadows

First Australians Episode 7: We Are No Longer Shadows

This worksheet and answers accompanies the SBS program First Australians Episode 7: We Are No Longer Shadows. It covers the life of Eddie Koiki Mabo's life and his struggle for the most essential civil right: the right for Indigenous Peoples in Australia to claim legal ownership over their traditional lands. His success in the High Court in 1992 court meant that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples could actually own their land and make decisions with regard to that land such as who can live on it and any economic activities related to the land. But it was also a tremendous moral victory to those who fought for ATSI civil rights. The worksheet is designed for students of the NSW History K-10 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum. Stage 5 Topic 4: Rights and Freedoms. It can also be used as part of the NSW Legal Studies Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum.
