Abstract

In June 1992, the High Court of Australia declared in its historic Mabo(1) decision that the common law of Australia acknowledged, recognized, and protected the rights of its Indigenous Peoples to occupy and use their traditional lands, waters, and other resources.(2) These rights and interests in land, collectively referred to as "Native Title," comprise a set of unique or sui generis property rights(3) that include both proprietary and non-proprietary/usufructuary rights.(4)
